careers. As for the NASW, their vision and belief system influences me the most. In the case of Debra, I would be influenced by my principles and the principles of my education and of the NASW to serve my client with ethical behavior on my part (Code of Ethics, n.d.). It is essential to follow these principles to affect social change. References National Association of Social Workers. (2008). Code of ethics. Washington DC: Author.

COLLAPSE I made an error in my citation. The date should be 2008, not n.d.. My apologies, as it is 3:40 am. I should know better to do homework this early.

I agree that the NASW ethics and Walden Mission and Vision statements go hand and hand. They promote the health and well being of not only the client but social workers as well. I feel that it also encourages us to strive to be the best and to uphold the standards set forth. Having the knowledge of these statements and codes places us in a position to be held accountable and to not fall short.

RE: Discussion - Week 10 COLLAPSE Roxanne, An insight that I gained from reading your post is that we are not the decision makers in the process of being a change agent and a social worker. We are the facilitator of resources that enable us to empower our clients to be able to make sound, educated decisions based on the education and resources that we provide (Kirst-Ashman & Hull, 2015). We should refrain from taking control of the situation and let our clients make decisions, but we can help them along the way in order to help them make the best decision. Like the case that I referenced with Debra (Plummer, Markis, & Brocksen, 2014) it would be tough for me to know that she goes back to her husband, based on the circumstances of the case, if he did not get help and demonstrate that he would change and understand that it is not right to beat his wife, but that is a decision that Debra has to make and I should accept her decision and continue to help her with resources and choices.
