"Ethics for Trainers: Applying the NSDTA Code of Ethics for Training and Development Professionals"

Summary:
This workshop will introduce participants to the NSDTA Code of Ethics for Training and Development in Human Services, the most widely used code of ethics specifically for trainers. It provides practical examples of how to integrate the Code into training, and applying its values and principles in ethical scenarios. Its application enables trainers to plan ethically informed learning events.
 
Since the inception of the National Staff Development and Training Association (NSDTA), increasingly complex social problems (e.g., poverty, homelessness, domestic violence, child maltreatment, unemployment, substance abuse, Covid 19) co-existing with increased funding challenges, have elevated the need for a well-trained human services workforce. 
 
Changes have also occurred within the human services training and development work environment (e.g., increased funding for training in many human services areas, advent of the private training consultant, increased litigation of training, learners who have experienced trauma, availability of distance technology and alternative delivery models).  These changes have created the need for highly competent training and development professionals who can deal with ethical issues emerging from new practices and/or conflicting values and responsibilities.

Objectives:
Participants will:

  • Introduce child welfare trainers to the NSDTA code and its application
  • Explore an 8-step process for applying the code
  • Practice applying the code to training scenarios
  • Network with other child welfare trainers

CYC Certification Competency Domain: Professionalism
