BHS-320 Topic 8 Assignment Part A- Working with Special Groups Presentation


Choose a special group from Topic 8 to research. Then, research four websites of agencies or organizations that can assist a behavioral health worker in ethical practice when working with clients in the special group.

Create a 6-8-slide PowerPoint presentation, not including a title slide and reference slide, that covers what each of these four organizations specifically have to offer the behavioral health worker in making ethical choices and decisions when working with the special group identified.

The following should be included in your presentation:

  1. How might these organizations help decrease personal biases?

  2. Are there any suggestions on the website that discuss ethical considerations or special considerations when working with special groups that have ethical undercurrents? For example, when working with disabled individuals using language and terminology that is affirming and supportive of their “abilities” rather than “disabilities” would lend to the ethic of beneficence.

  3. How would involvement in one of these organizations contribute to following the ACA Code of Ethics standards: A.1.d, A.2.c, A.1.a, A.4.a, A.4.b, and A.7.a?
