The following information explores the ethical, moral, and legal challenges of possible or potential dual relationships of an advocate or mediator. Dual Relationships Dual relationships are complex and risky, especially for the human service or social worker. According to Dewane (2010), These relationships can include nonsexual and legitimate interactions, many of which are unplanned and inadvertent, yet still have ethical ramifications (para. 2). Dual Relationship Challenges A dual relationship is a clash of attention and crosses the boundaries described in many of the advocacy and mediation code of ethics.
When these changes occur it affects the criminal justice system and they have to follow certain rules and guidelines in order to not violate people’s rights. Another thing is that when social value changes along with the laws it will affect the way that people interpret these
Describe the potential tension between maintaining an individual’s confidentiality and disclosing concerns There are some situations when confidentiality needs to be breached to report information to a higher authority. The disclosure of private and personal information should only take place when: ▶ withholding the information is likely to threaten the safety and wellbeing of others ▶ a crime has been, or is likely to be committed. It is my responsibility to check the policy and procedure at my place of work about disclosure of confidential information, in order to be clear about how to act and who to contact should the need arise. Speak to a senior person within or outside of my work setting who is able to act on the information appropriately. It is a mistake to think this is only a matter for senior
Suicide can be seen as one of the ultimate acts of deviance mainly due to nature where it harms ones self-preservation and can be very hard for one to understand why this act is committed due to various reasons which can be tied such as that of an emotional factor and it can be clearly seen that human beings emotions can sometimes be hard to read along with one’s mind. This particular section was understudied by sociologists until the 1960’s due to Durkheim’s research on it in the 1897. There is a deep division between two perspectives; positivists – who wish to use natural science to study their theories when possible and interpretivists – who prefer to explore the way society is constructed through people’s interactions. Durkheim chose to study suicide in an attempt to prove that the new subject of sociology could provide an explanation for an act that seemed to be the opposite of what could be considered as ‘social’. By proving that sociology had something useful to say in explaining, he hoped to secure the status of sociology amongst the newly emerging science.

Durkheim argues our behaviour is caused by social facts; social forces found in the structure of society. Steven Lukes (1992) aaargues social facts have three features; they’re external to individuals, they constrain individuals shaping their behaviour and they’re greater than individuals, they exist on a different level from the individual. Durkheim argues the suicide rate is a social fact.
After researching and reviewing the Guidelines for Ethical Conduct for the Physician Assistant Profession, I conclude that Joe’s behavior is deemed unethical. He is violating many of the physician assistant codes, and could be reprimanded in the future. According to the Ethical Conduct for the Physician Assistant Profession, working with a friend or family member can form a conflict of interest. A conflict of interest in
3.2 The general diagnosing issues specifically surrounding Borderline Personality Disorder While it is difficult to diagnose adolescents with Personality Disorders it is also challenging in general to give a Personality Disorder diagnosis. This is because according to Tutorial Letter 101 for PYC4802 (2012, p.34), in order to diagnose Personality Disorders individuals need to be accessed over time, as well as across various scenarios. Individuals also need to be detached from symptoms that may only have appeared after specific stressors, traumatic experiences and/or fleeting mental states. Borderline Personality Disorder in particular provokes a sense doubt of in researchers and psychiatrists as well as feelings of aggravation in those who work with such patients. The diagnosis of a Borderline Personality Disorder has been disputed as some clinicians state that the disorder can be explained by various comorbid conditions or as alternative disorders found on Axis 1 of the DSM-IV-TR (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Personality Disorders), such as a mood disorder (Goodman, Hazlett, New, Koenigsberg & Siever, 2009, p.
Of course there are many other risks to discuss and could happen when psychological research takes place. Some of these risks in some cases need to be very much evaluated, so that the individuals participating can be informed of potential risks. What can be a threat to one individual may not necessarily be a threat to the next one. Some of the many injuries can be social and physical and in some cases mental(Shaughnessy, Zechmeister, &Zechmeister, 2005). ”With the risk being small some researchers should try to minimize the threat and save the individual” (Shaughnessy, Zechmeister, &Zechmeister, 2005).What needs to take place is that the researchers must utilize the procedures in place for the individuals that are involved with the research “(Shaughnessy, Zechmeister, &Zechmeister, 2005).
If a leader is lacking in interpersonal communication skills, the message is likely to be misunderstood, causing confusion among those who are following. In regard to the criminal justice system this type of miscommunication could result in the loss of a case, incorrect charges filed, and possible violation of code of ethics. Because the information an individual is in charge of in the criminal justice system often times is so sensitive the lack of interpersonal communication can result in the loss of a leader’s position within the organization. It is the best practice to develop or possess excellent communication skills and interpersonal communications if a leader
In this definition, the words suggestive images and messages can be open to so many interpretations that it may not generate the accurate information the researchers hope to achieve. They highlighted that the current phenomenon should be of concern to parents, healthcare professionals, educators, and law enforcement; since, there are negative consequences associated with sexting. In addition, the researchers mentioned that, these teenagers do not have the same capacity as adults to make rational choices before engaging in risky behaviors. Such a statement can be true; however, are they making a general statement that infer teenagers do not make rational decisions as adults? This is a harsh statement, which I think should be reconsidered, since there are teenagers that make rational decisions just as adults
