ETHICAL DILEMMA PAPER INSTRUCTIONS You will write an analytic paper integrating various sources of knowledge: the textbook, the Bible, and the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) Code of Ethics from your discipline. The paper must be no longer than 6 pages (not including the title page and reference page). There is no need to include an abstract in the paper. You will identify a social-work-related scenario from the list provided that poses an ethical dilemma. You will define the dilemma and identify the competing values present in the dilemma. You are to provide your first “gut” solution to the problem. You are to analyze the problem according to the model provided in the textbook while incorporating the additional sources of knowledge. You are to critically evaluate the potential choices and provide a rationale for each. You are to discuss how you could use supervision and consultation as a resource when evaluating potential choices. One of the choices needs to be a principled solution that reflects a biblical worldview. You will re-evaluate your “gut” response in light of this process. This paper assesses learning outcomes 1–8. The paper must be written in current APA format. The paper must align with the following guidelines: 1. Describe the ethical dilemma. • Describe the ethical dilemma in your own words. • Who is involved in the ethical dilemma? • What are the competing values present in the dilemma?” • Whom does the dilemma impact (or whom could it potentially impact) and how? • Describe the competing values present in the dilemma from the list of 6 social work values in the NASW Code of Ethics. How do the values present in the dilemma compete with each other? 2. Describe your first “gut” solution to the problem. 3. Use the morality framework (Step 1, #1–10 and Step 2) on pages 41–46 to analyze the ethical dilemma. Please number the steps in your paper. If any of the steps are not applicable to your situation, please note this in your paper. • Critically evaluate the potential choices and provide a rationale for each. • Discuss how you could use supervision and consultation as a resource when evaluating potential choices. One of the choices needs to be a principled solution that reflects a biblical worldview. 4. Re-evaluate your initial “gut” solution. • Describe at least 2 alternative solutions and provide a rationale for each. At least 1 of the solutions must reflect a biblical worldview, and you must support this solution with scripture. • Discuss how you could use supervision and consultation as a resource when evaluating the potential solutions. o What would be the benefit in talking with your supervisor about this dilemma? How would you approach your supervisor about this situation? o Are there others who would be appropriate to consult about this particular situation? If so, who and how do you think they could be of assistance to you? o What additional resources could you examine (e.g. agency policy, State or federal laws, etc.) to assist you in evaluating the potential solutions?
