The management of ethics and boundaries in macro practice including supervision, administration, quality assurance, contractual monitoring, etc. is an area that is conspicuously absent in professional literature. The challenges faced by macro practice practitioners are unique and often pose some especially challenging dilemmas. This workshop will address an array of challenges encountered in positions of leadership during the provision of human services. Strategies will be discussed utilizing the NASW Code of Ethics, best practices, and current literature.

Objectives:
Participants will learn how macro practice responsibilities can conflict with social work values and ethical standards. Participants will gain an increased awareness of these unique ethical dilemmas and will learn strategies to confront and address these issues. This program is designed to be interactive as participants share challenging ethical issues encountered in macro practice. Participants will also learn about the importance of using the NASW Ethics audit in programs that cover both client services and personnel management. Ethical issues in supervision will be addressed and an ethical decision making process will be discussed. Working with Boards of Directors, advocacy, social justice, and legal considerations will be included in the workshop content. The establishment of professional boundaries while using social media and providing services in a virtual world will be discussed. The content will also cover the use and cautions when developing an agency website, and in the use of online investigation resources. HIPPA and confidentiality will be addressed in the context of using technology in practice.
