Ethical Considerations when Working with Sexual Minorities

American culture has been slow to embrace equality for sexual minorities. The laws vary from one state to the next and can even vary from city to city within the same state. While clinical and ethical guidelines may embrace equality and one’s right to self determination, the American political climate is divided. It is a challenge for social work to be consistent as a profession with such inconsistency in laws, attitudes, and beliefs across the nation. This workshop will allow social workers to assess their own attitudes about serving sexual minorities while comparing those attitudes with their professional code of ethics. Social workers will gain knowledge of emerging terminology used to describe sexual minorities and sexual relationship concepts. The presenter will use clinical as well as cultural terminology to educate participants. The presenter will take caution to present the subject as professionally as possible while still delivering information that is factual and relevant in current American culture.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define sexual minorities.
  • Discuss terminology sexual minorities use to define themselves.
  • Describe how concepts of human sexuality and relationships are changing in American Culture.
  • Identify settings in which social workers are already serving sexual minorities.
  • Review social work principles and ethical standards as they relate to serving sexual minorities.
  • Examine the challenge of social work to balance clinical service delivery with social work ethics when working with sexual minorities.
