Social Work Ethics and Solitary Confinement: A Struggle with Dual Loyalty

March 30, 2021 3:00-4:30 Central Time (registration is now open)

Faculty: Ali Winters, DSW, LCSW and Mary Buser, LCSW

This workshop is designed for forensic social workers who are interested in learning more about how to navigate ethical dilemmas, in particular that of dual loyalty – a conflict between competing loyalties of the workplace and client. Ali Winters and Mary Buser, two forensic social workers and activists against solitary confinement, will discuss the dangers of prolonged solitary confinement and its effects on the individual, family, organization, and community. They will then walk through the dimensions of ethical practice when this conflict of dual loyalty exists. The presentation will end with a focus on the elements nestled within this ethical dilemma and the decisions made by each social worker.
