Competency Case Dilemma
In a 1,050- to 1,400-word (or 3- to 4-page) paper (excluding references and title page), discuss a competency-related scenario or a case of your choice, either from our readings or related to a situation that you have encountered in which you address the specific steps you would take to embrace ethical practices in your work. In what ways does the scenario you have selected present an ethical, legal, professional, or moral problem related to competency issues? In what way does your professional code of conduct offer possible solutions or opportunities for resolution? What are the implications of your ethical decision-making and actions for the client in this case, for those related to the client, and for you as a professional? In addition to the required readings, cite at least two additional references.
