Ethics for Trainers: Applying the NSDTA Code of Ethics For Training And Development Professionals

Live 2 Hour Virtual Training
RESCHEDULED:  to be determined
11:00 Pacific, 1:00 Central, 2:00 Eastern
This webinar will introduce participants to the NSDTA Code of Ethics for Training and Development in Human Services.  It provides practical examples of integrating the Code into training, and applying the Code’s values and principles to ethical scenarios. This is the most widely used code of ethics for trainers.  Its application helps trainers plan ethically informed learning events.
Since the inception of the National Staff Development and Training Association (NSDTA), increasingly complex social problems (e.g., poverty, homelessness, domestic violence, child maltreatment, unemployment, substance abuse, Covid 19) co-existing with increased funding challenges, have elevated the need for a well-trained human services workforce.
Changes have also occurred within the human services training and development work environment (e.g., increased funding for training in many human services areas, advent of the private training consultant, increased litigation of training, learners who have experienced trauma, availability of distance technology and alternative delivery models).  These changes have created the need for highly competent training and development professionals who can deal with ethical issues emerging from new practices and/or conflicting values and responsibilities.
Learning Objectives: 
  • Introduce child welfare trainers to the NSDTA code and its application
  • Learn an 8-step process for applying the code
  • Practice applying the code to training scenarios
