Human services professionals work in a field that is broadly defined and includes such fields as social work/social services, welfare and public assistance services, counseling and guidance, and related vocations. Professionals in this field are often required to help clients make life-altering decisions. The help that is provided to clients is grounded within the context of a code of ethics that shape the values, principles, and behavior of practitioners.
This course explores the impact of social media and internet communication on information gathering, sharing, and the building of connections within the context of ethical guidelines and principles.
