In Chapters 8 and 9 of your textbook, you read about ethical and legal issues the human service professional may encounter. The human service professional will encounter ethical dilemmas in their professional career. You have read about how ethical practices are guided by a professional ethical standard. The chapter discusses several professional organizations that have established codes of ethics for the various helping professions. The human service professional ethical standards are guided by the National Organization for Human Services (NOHS). Incorporating ethical considerations in the workplace is paramount to the human service professional. Violations can result in disciplinary actions or even dismissal. The human service professional must have a personal constitution which supports and represents the values stated in the NOHS Ethical Standards for Human Services Professionals. The ethical standards and state laws should guide your professional practice.
You also read about how the human service professional must maintain boundaries. Establishing and managing appropriate boundaries for the professional allows for good practices. The readings guided you in self-examination and reflection on ethical standards, laws, and appropriate decisions. Recognizing unethical behavior in yourself and your colleagues allows for competence and responsibility.
