(p.130) 10 Consultation and Ethics
Consultation Theory and Practice

Lynn Milgram Mayer

Oxford University Press

Although the NASW Code of Ethics clearly articulates the mission of the profession and its core values of service, social justice, dignity and worth of the person, importance of human relationships, integrity, and competence, school social work consultants are not immune to ethical dilemmas. In fact, they might actually be in a position to feel more challenged than their colleagues in other social service settings due to the complexities of working in an educational host environment. This chapter discusses ethical dilemmas faced by school social work consultants, including privacy of minors, confidentiality, informed consent, and conflicts of interest. Ethical dilemmas are then examined in the context of the school setting and the school situation. Finally, ethical dilemmas are examined from the perspective of consequential theory, principles theory, and virtue ethics.

Keywords:   Consultation and ethics, ethical dilemmas, privacy of minors, confidentiality, informed consent, conflict of interest, ethical models and theories
