An Encounter with the National Code of Ethics...

The team from the National Alliance for Direct Support Professional, John Raffaele and Joe MacBeth, will take the DSPs on a journey to discover and learn about ethical responsibilities, and engage the participants in an encounter with some of the real dilemmas that confrontdirect support professionals on the job every day. In the role play, the audience will be asked  to make ethical decisions using the NADSP's Code of Ethics. Participants will then be asked to consider ways that ethical practices can be incorporated into daily practice. The beliefs and attitudes that are associated with being an effective human service professional are the cornerstones of this code.  The Code of Ethics is not the handbook of the profession, but rather a road map to assist us in staying the course of securing freedom, justice, and equality for all.
