Eye on Ethics

Reflective Practice in Social Work — The Ethical Dimension
By Frederic G. Reamer, PhD
April 2013

Recently, I received an urgent voicemail message from a hospital social worker: “Please get back to me as soon as possible. I have a meeting tomorrow morning with our head of human resources, and I’m very nervous about it.”

Later in the day, I connected with the social worker and learned the following: He had been employed by the hospital for seven years and had never been disciplined. His current predicament began when his immediate supervisor called him in to discuss concerns about possible boundary violations and an alleged inappropriate dual relationship with a hospital patient. The social worker explained to me that in his personal life he is actively involved in a community-based group of parents who adopted children from China. The group sponsors a wide range of activities to support and enhance the children’s ethnic identity. Through this involvement, the social worker said, he and his wife had become very friendly with several other adoptive parents.

About three weeks earlier, one of the parents who had become a good friend was admitted to the social worker’s hospital for treatment of a chronic, debilitating infection. The friend did not receive social work services. During the friend’s hospital stay, the social worker occasionally stopped by his room to say hello and inquire about the friend’s health. The patient’s attending physician had collaborated professionally with the social worker in other hospital cases and was well aware of the patient’s friendship with the social worker.

One afternoon during the patient’s hospital stay, the physician contacted the social worker and explained that the patient was distraught after having just learned that he was diagnosed with bone cancer. According to the social worker, the physician asked the social worker to visit the patient and offer emotional support. The social worker visited the patient in his room and spent about an hour helping his friend process the distressing medical news.

The social worker documented this patient encounter in the hospital chart. During a random quality-control review of social workers’ chart entries, the hospital’s social work supervisor read the note and became concerned because the social worker had not been assigned to provide social work services to this patient. The supervisor learned of the social worker and patient’s friendship and notified the director of human resources, who documented this “incident” in the social worker’s personnel record and asked to meet with the social worker.

The Nature of Reflective Practice
In 1983, the late scholar Donald Schon published his influential and groundbreaking book The Reflective Practitioner: How Professionals Think in Action . Schon’s thesis, based on his extensive empirical research, was that the most skilled and effective professionals have the ability to pay critical attention to the way they conduct their work at the same time that they do their work. Schon coined the terms “knowing-in-action” and “reflection-in-action,” which suggest that some professionals can take a step back and think hard about what they are doing while they are doing it. The concepts are akin to the widely used social work concept “use of self.”

Ordinarily the concepts of knowing-in-action and reflection-in-action are applied to practitioners’ cultivation and use of technical skill, whether in surgery, architecture, town planning, engineering, dentistry, or psychotherapy. In my view, and as the above case demonstrates, social workers would do well to extend the application of these compelling concepts to their identification and management of ethical issues in the profession. Ideally, effective practitioners would have the ability to recognize and address ethical issues and challenges as they arise in the immediate context of their work, not later when someone else points them out. Put another way, social workers would have a refined “ethics radar” that increases their ability to detect and respond to ethical issues.

Of course, the most important benefit is client protection. However, an important by-product is self-protection, that is, the increased likelihood that social workers will protect themselves from ethics-related complaints.

Implementing Reflective Ethics Practice
Certainly the hospital social worker who called me with panic in his voice would have benefited from reflective ethics practice and highly sensitive ethics radar. Had he reflected on the ethical dimensions of the boundary challenges that emerged when he interacted with his friend and hospital patient, it is likely that this well-meaning practitioner would have avoided his unpleasant encounter with the human resources department. The social worker’s decision to visit his friend was not the error; that was a humane and compassionate gesture. The error, rather, was not reflecting on his role in that moment and managing the boundaries carefully, including discussing them with his friend and his supervisor.

In my experience, ethics-related reflection-in-action entails three key elements.

Knowledge: Skillful management of many ethical dilemmas requires knowledge of core concepts and prevailing standards. Ethics concepts are addressed in professional literature and standards exist in several forms, including relevant codes of ethics, agency policies, statutes, and regulations. For example, the National Association of Social Workers’ Codeof Ethics includes explicit standards pertaining to boundaries, dual relationships, and conflicts of interest (especially section 1.06). It would have been best for the hospital-based social worker to consult relevant literature and standards with regard to conflicts that can arise when a social worker encounters a friend or social acquaintance in the work setting. The hospital’s personnel policies also prohibit dual relationships that involve conflicts of interest.

In some cases, although not all, statutes and regulations address ethical issues. In the United States, both federal and state laws address various ethical issues, such as confidentiality, privileged communication, informed consent, and social workers’ ethical conduct. Such laws would not have been particularly helpful in the hospital social worker’s case, but often they are helpful and critically important, for example, when social workers must decide whether to disclose confidential information without clients’ consent to protect a third party from harm or whether parental consent is necessary to provide services to minors who seek help with substance abuse but insist that this information be withheld from their parents.

Transparency: Reflective social workers who sense an ethical issue share their concern with supervisors, colleagues, and appropriate administrators. An effective way to protect clients and practitioners alike is to avoid any suggestion that the ethical issue is being handled “in the dark.” Such clarity demonstrates social workers’ good faith efforts to manage ethical dilemmas responsibly. When appropriate, clients should be included in the conversation.

Process: Although some ethical decisions are clear-cut, many are not. The hospital social worker who contacted me was unsure about the best way to manage his involvement with a good friend who had become a patient. Unfortunately, the social worker did not notify his supervisor about the dilemma or seek consultation. He documented his lengthy hospital-room encounter with the patient, but doing so in the client’s hospital chart created the impression that the social worker was functioning in his professional capacity, not as a friend. My hunch is that had the social worker notified his supervisor of his friendship with the patient and made clear that any contact with the patient occurred as a friend, the social worker may have avoided any adverse personnel issues. What I have learned is that many ethical decisions are not simple events; they require a considerable, often painstaking, process.

During the course of the profession’s history, social workers have refined the art of reflective practice. Historically, these skills have been applied primarily to clinical, policy, advocacy, and administrative functions. Clearly, reflective practice should extend to ethics as well.

    computer forensics (cyber forensics)

    Computer forensics is the application of investigation and analysis techniques to gather and preserve evidence from a particular computing device in a way that is suitable for presentation in a court of law. The goal of computer forensics is to perform a structured investigation while maintaining a documented chain of evidence to find out exactly what happened on a computing device and who was responsible for it.

    Forensic investigators typically follow a standard set of procedures: After physically isolating the device in question to make sure it cannot be accidentally contaminated, investigators make a digital copy of the device’s storage media. Once the original media has been copied, it is locked in a safe or other secure facility to maintain its pristine condition. All investigation is done on the digital copy.

    Investigators use a variety of techniques and proprietary software forensic applications to examine the copy, searching hidden folders and unallocated disk space for copies of deleted, encrypted, or damaged files. Any evidence found on the digital copy is carefully documented in a finding report and verified with the original in preparation for legal proceedings that involve discovery, depositions, or actual litigation.

    Computer forensics has become its own area of scientific expertise, with accompanying coursework and certification.

    You can also expect a relocation / moving expense reimbursement of another $5,000 to $10,000. At year end you would receive around $10,000 in bonus. In total, you are looking at around $75,000 in total compensation. This turns out to be a little less than in the top finance areas like investment banking and private equity but it is close.

    The compensation is higher for MBAs. A typical MBA graduate is about 28 years old and has one to four years of prior work experience and two years of business education. A typical MBA would enter a consulting firm at a mid-level with a base salary of $125,000 and a signing bonus of $20,000. In addition, a typical relocation bonus would be $10-15K and at year end a reasonable bonus would be $30,000. In total, the first year total compensation would be in the $170,000 to $200,000 area.

    Salaries tend to be higher in the top-ranked strategy consulting firms because these firms generate more revenue per consultant than do shops focused on operations, implementation and systems.

    As careers progress, consultants end up making somewhat less than investment bankers but more than persons in most corporate positions. Consultants get more variety, less punishing work hours, a better training in business and broader exit opportunities. Bankers get worse hours, more money but also can have much less travel. Bankers also get to engage with the same clients for many years while consultants will generally move from client to client situation over the years.

    One question that often comes up is whether the same firm will make different offers at different schools. If you knew this, it would be helpful in the negotiation process (assuming you were being lowballed). There is remarkably little evidence that this happens. So, for example, when Accenture offers $119,000 at MIT and then turns around and offers $65,000 at a Purdue, what is going on is that different parts of the organization are making the offers for different jobs.

    It is widely believed that entry level salaries among the top five or six firms are quite close to each other. One person we talked to mentioned that his firm would automatically give out raises to entry level consultants when it was learned that another rival firm had raised salaries.

    This is particularly evident in the level of the median consulting salary and signing bonus offered to the MBA class of 2008 at top schools. Note that it was at or close to $145,000 across the board. In part, this was because McKinsey’s deal was $145K to signing MBAs and they were a heavy recruiter.

    Salaries in consulting should not be quickly compared to those in business and corporate management because the work is very different. Corporate managers have broader experience and administrate and implement. The work of management consulting, in contrast, is information collection and analysis. A skilled consultant will be able to use their expertise to analyze and integrate information to formulate courses of action to solve critical problems.

    While there is substantial growth in expected compensation among consultants as they become more senior, starting wage rates are well above the national average for college students (obviously these data include more than college students though).

    Salaries for senior-level consultants tend to be much higher than those for lower level consultants. Total compensation including bonus and other fringes would increase this significantly. For example at one office of a prominent Bix 5 consulting firm, the total compensation for partners ranges from $300,000 a year to over $1,000,000 a year.

    Is Consulting Pay Related to the Size of the Firm?

    In many businesses, pay is lower in smaller firms. For example, Robert Half International reports that in smaller accounting firms, partners earn significantly less than partners make in larger firms. An accounting partner (and for that matter a corporate administrator) is compensated for their management skills. Managers in bigger firms typically have larger responsibilities which translate to increased salaries. Interestingly, the consulting business does not work that way. The reason is that the best people may prefer the autonomy and impact that they can have in a smaller firm. The responsibilities of a consultant are significant, regardless of the size of the practice. Its much more like being an attorney; an attorney in a small firm can have a very large case. The largest firm in management consulting is Accenture. They do not offer the highest entry-level salaries in the industry. It is readily apparent from the literature that there isn’t necessarily a relation between consultant pay and the size of consulting firms.

    Why Do Consultants Get Paid What they Do?

    The product consultants produce is ideas, advice and suggestions. Problem-solving and new ideas are essential to creating a successful, well-led and functional organization. Consultants add value by helping organizations do what they do better, faster, and cheaper. That’s why most successful consulting firms rely on a small cadre of highly skilled, thoughtful professionals. A few really bright people can create much more value than a larger group. Consulting is a cerebral business where understanding, expertise and analytical skills are highly valued. Increasingly, consulting is done in the context of relationships which involve working with an organization over many years to ensure continued monitoring, discussion and implementation of new ideas. Because consultants are hired to produce results and because they have a high profile in a client organization, consulting firms typically hire the “best and the brightest.” Most firms in consulting are relatively small, but use persons with superlative experience. Some of the brightest minds working for government and business (ranging from Henry Kissinger to Michael Hammer to Tom Peters) are in small consulting firms.
