This course examines the relationship of social policy, ethics, and the human services field. Students will address ethical dilemmas, particularly as they relate to current and needed social policies on local, state, and national levels. A basic understanding of social welfare theories will assist the student in evaluating, assessing, and advocating for change in both a micro / macro perspective. The Ethical Standards of Human Service Professionals (National Organization for Human Services) will serve as a backbone for students to use in decision-making, assessment of clients and client groups, and promotion of change in a diverse setting.
