communicationFrederic Reamer's Eye on Ethics column is a great way to supplement your social work exam prep. Take a recent column about ethics and electronically stored information. In it, he writes,

During the past couple of years, I have consulted on a number of court and licensing board cases in which formal evidence included copies of social workers' Facebook postings, text messages, e-mail messages, and electronic health records, among other forms of electronic communications. All of these cases focused on ethical issues, including the ways in which social workers managed boundaries, conflicts of interest, confidential information, documentation, and termination of services. In several cases, the social workers were shocked to discover that their digital records could be subpoenaed and introduced as evidence against them.

The column continues with several examples of email and other ecommunication serving to help licensing boards press cases of social worker malpractice. Could any of these serve as the backbone of a question on the social work licensing exam? Sure could!

If you're looking for a  break from practice questions and have some extra reading time, take a look at the column archives. There's lots of exam fodder sitting there. Have at it.

Happy studying and good luck on the exam!
