Multiculturalism: What’s ETHICS Got to Do with It?

Multiculturalism and ethics are essential to a social worker’s and counselor’s world.

When it comes to racial, cultural, sexual, economic, and religious issues, where do we emerge with cultural humility and awareness with our clients? What does serving clients differing in their values, beliefs, and culture mean to social workers and counselors helping them? Where do ethics come into the treatment process while counseling or providing services to our clients?

This training will explore the connection between multiculturalism and ethics as a basis for treatment. It will entail doing case scenarios and utilizing ethical decision making steps to resolve multicultural ethical dilemmas. This training will also assist social workers and counselors in exploring personal biases that could hinder healing and hope for culturally diverse clients.
