BHS 302

 

Write a     500-750-word paper in which you discuss how you apply the basic     ethical principles in behavioral health practice of autonomy,     fidelity, beneficence, nonmaleficence, justice, and honesty as they     relate to the following cases.

Case 1: A client with depression who has been     seeing a therapist for a year has begun to get more depressed and     has recently revealed an eating disorder that has been untreated for     many years. This client is seeing you for case management services.     In your capacity as a case manager, how can you ensure you are     meeting the basic ethical principles listed above? Apply each of the     principles to different aspects of the case you would reasonably     expect to encounter. 

Case 2: You have discovered that a client you     have come to know and like has recently abused her son. This client     has many stressors in her life including an unsupportive ex-husband     who is not paying child support and does not visit his son, and     a job that does not pay enough. These stressors are causing     financial stress and little support for the client. She is a good     mother other than this incident and you would hate to see her son     taken from her. In light of this case, what are you ethically and     legally obligated to do? How would you work through your own     conflicts in this case? How would your actions in whatever you     identify them to be apply to the basic ethical principles listed     (autonomy, fidelity, beneficence, nonmaleficence, justice, and honesty)?
