  • Now..lets talk about Case Management
  • Slide 25
  • When you hear the term Case Management what do you think of or imagine in your mind?
  • Slide 26
  • Briefly describe an ethical dilemma you might face as a Case Manager
  • Slide 27
  • An Ethical Dilemma You are a Case Manager working with clients with mental illness and due to a recent separation from your spouse, your debts are building up and your car was recently repossessed. One of your long-term clients sells used cars, and notices you no longer have a vehicle. She offers you a loaner car at no cost until you can afford to buy another vehicle so you can still travel to see clients. How do you respond?
  • Slide 28
  • Another Ethical Dilemma You are providing case management services to a young woman, Java, who escaped a serious domestic violence relationship. You found safe housing for her and her two young children. Now she is caring for some of her friends children to earn money to support herself and her family. You need someone to watch your son Brad on weekends because you work a second job to earn money for a down payment on a house. Java offers to watch Brad for you and you are tempted to do this because you know Java and you trust her; plus you know she really needs the money. What would you do?
  • Slide 29
  • One last Ethical Dilemma You are locking your case management office door late Friday night, about to leave for the weekend, when your client; 17-year-old Jasmine, shows up in the hallway crying and says her parents threw her out because she admitted she was having sex with her boyfriend. She is scared and has no where to go and this neighborhood is known for late night violence and sexual assaults. You call her parents and they scream at you that their daughter is never stepping foot in their house again. You call the CPS hotline and they say there is nothing they can do for a homeless 17-year-old. The closest all- night shelter is almost two-hours away and you know from experience it is no place a single young woman. All the services that could help Jasmine are closed now until Monday. What do you do???
