Participants will discuss the ethics of duty to warn as it relates to confidentiality and mandated reporting. Every social worker knows and understands the importance of the duty to warn, yet many do no report. It is imperative to understand the parameters and sanctions related to duty to warn. Attendees will explore the history of duty to warn (landmark cases), the definition of bioethics, and current legislative proposals. Discussion will focus on confidentiality dilemmas, mandated reporting, discrepancies in reporting, code of ethics, ethical framework model, and best practice techniques. This is an interactive workshop in which cases vignettes will be presented and participants will work in a group setting to further maximize their understanding of the concepts presented.
