I'm too appalled and infuriated to even try to give my thoughts.

I think that's ridiculous and the people who told her not to make the report should be fired- or worse. I think it was very brave of her to do what she'd been told not to do, even knowing what could happen to her.

That agency is/should be in a whole world of shat.

At no point in time does a clients rights to privacy or confidentiality supersede a criminal activity. I'm more concerned with their lack of urgency over potential child pornography than the termination of the employee. Not saying she should have been fired for what she did but on the scale of wrong, their lack of appropriate action rings much much louder than her termination.

wrong. wrong. wrong. wrong.

I'm proud of the employee for risking her job, and I hope a good lawyer takes care of her.

I'm just glad her risking her job wasn't all in vain.

Her gut must have been telling her something. If they hadn't found that child porn in his home, this would all have been for nothing that she lost her job and I'm so glad they found something (not saying I'm glad it exists and was there) but I'm glad the woman's intuition about the searches done by the client were right and she reported him.

The worker did as she was mandated to by the NASW. That agency should lose all state and federal funding for trying to hide this. I'm sure that worker knew more about her client than the supervisor.

Social Workers and &ldquo;Duty to Warn&rdquo; State Laws

Quote:
Analysis and Conclusions

Social workers often have responsibility for making difficult determinations regarding the assessment and treatment of clients, including taking steps to assure their safety and that of others. Some of the key issues for clinical social workers to review in a case involving a possible duty to warn are:
•whether the client is the individual who represents a threat to self or others
•who has disclosed the threat and under what circumstances
•how much time has passed since the threat was made
•whether the client possesses the means and capacity to carry out the threat
•whether the duty to warn has been established as a mandatory requirement in state law
•whether the threat of harm is to a specific individual or represents a general threat to the public at large
•whether the criteria for involuntary commitment may apply
•whether the state permits disclosure of a threat even if it is not mandatory
•who needs to be warned to effectively discharge the duty to warn (e.g. law enforcement, the intended target, the Department of Motor Vehicles, a treating physician, a responsible family member).
Code of Ethics (English and Spanish)

Quote:
6. SOCIAL WORKERS’ ETHICAL RESPONSIBILITIES TO THE BROADER SOCIETY

6.01 Social Welfare

Social workers should promote the general welfare of society, from local to global levels, and the development of people, their communities, and their environments. Social workers should advocate for living conditions conducive to the fulfillment of basic human needs and should promote social, economic, political, and cultural values and institutions that are compatible with the realization of social justice.
