It’s about Ethics: Creating and Maintaining Personal and Professional Boundaries
Resident Services Counselors (RSC) link residents with supportive services that allow them to maintain self-sufficiency in their homes. It is most important that the RSC understand the characteristics of the resident population and property in which they serve.
The issues that may impact the differential use of services are: socio-economic, age, culture, gender, race, sexual orientation and others. This webinar defines ethical standards and offers guidelines/principles to guide decision making and conduct when ethical issues arise.
