Best practice in the provision of care to children calls for all professionals to receive training in ethics. Aside from the obvious moral considerations attendant to expectations of ethical practice in working with vulnerable populations, sound training in ethical practice also constitutes a critically important approach to risk management, protecting the safety and wellbeing of clients, as well as protecting individual practitioners and agencies from adverse legal actions and licensing complaints.
