Human Services Code of Ethics and Professional Ethical Issues (Standards 10 and 11): Key Term Overview and Self-Assessment

Overview

This resource provides human services students with a general review and self-assessment of key terms related to diversity. This overview sets the foundation for advanced work on how to critically implement Human Services Code of Ethics Standards 10 and 11 in their work with clients.

STANDARD 10 Human service professionals provide services without discrimination or preference in regards to age, ethnicity, culture, race, ability, gender, language preference, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, nationality, or other historically oppressed groups.

STANDARD 11 Human service professionals are knowledgeable about their cultures and communities within which they practice. They are aware of multiculturalism in society and its impact on the community as well as individuals within the community. They respect the cultures and beliefs of individuals and groups.

Respect for Diversity

This chapter on respecting diversity is written from a community psychology lens, but addresses key terms that are very relevant in the human services field (especially in reference to human services ethical standards 10 and 11-below). While much of this chapter will be a review for you, please read through the text and take the self-assessment to ensure that you are familiar with these terms and concepts as we begin more advanced work in this area throughout Fieldwork I and II.
