SWK 345Final/ Ethical Dilemma Paper
An ethical dilemma occurs when two or more specific ethical ideals are at odds and you must make a decision, founded on your logical assessment, about which ethical ideal is more important. Ethical dilemmas allow you to investigate ethical questions from an analytical point of view and make a final determination for yourself.
Outline the specific ethical dilemma to identify the focus of your topic. This should come from your field placement if possible or your current job. If you do not have a specific example please think about a potential ethical dilemma that could happen with the population at your field site or job.
Please present both sides – your side as the person citing the dilemma but also the side/reasoning of the person/people that created the ethical dilemma. Speak to why you think the ethical dilemma happened from their perspective.
Make sure that your dilemma is ethical in nature by ensuring that it challenges two separate ethical assertions and forces you to decide between the two. For instance, you may decide to use the ethical dilemma of a hungry person deciding to steal food for himself and his family.
Determine which ethical standards are being challenged and in what way they are being challenged, to outline your ethical dilemma. List all significant elements of your ethical dilemma. This will involve you using the NASW Code of Ethics as your guide.
You will also need to use 3 journals, books, articles, etc to support your position. (4 references minimum- NASW Code of Ethics and 3 other scholarly sources.
