Money Matters: Ethical Business Practices for Undercompensated Social Workers

(Accelerate Membership Course)

Today, social work is known for its holistic approach to understanding and addressing social problems. Thousands of women and men from different walks of life have joined the profession to enhance human well-being and help meet the basic human needs of all people with a specific focus on those who are vulnerable, oppressed and living in poverty. While many social workers would agree that helping others is extremely rewarding both personally and professionally, a large percentage of social workers often question whether it is worth it financially?

Despite the significant contributions that social workers make to enhance the human well-being of all people, financial compensation lags behind other healthcare professionals.

In this informative 3-hour course, you will explore money matters and ethical business practices that impact undercompensated social workers. Dr. Buckingham will showcase how social work ethical principles, gender inequalities and emotional dissonance intertwines and presents challenges for social workers who desire to build financial prosperity. He will also showcase practical examples of how social workers can serve as role models for oppressed and poverty-stricken populations.
