Discussion board 1
Many novice human services providers or those who are new to the field are required to practice under supervision to gain the skills necessary to work autonomously with their clients. These professionals who require supervision do not possess the licensure or certification needed to practice independently. The supervision provides the novice professionals with an opportunity to develop the skills necessary to practice independently by working with experienced clinicians while meeting the standards required by their state or province to obtain licensure at the highest level, which would allow them to practice independently.
However, some human services professionals may never seek the highest level of licensure and practice indefinitely under the required supervision of their profession.

Discussion board 2
In this module, you learned about the most important ethical standards in human services. Boundaries, competence, and accountability through documentation and program evaluation are the foundation of the effective practice of direct service providers and the stable functioning of human service agencies. The agency administrator has the responsibility for ensuring the ethical delivery of services, accountability of agency employees, and sustainability through funding and best practices in service delivery. Familiarity with these ethical and operational standards will prepare human service administrators to manage complex and diverse agencies.
In a minimum of 200 words, respond to the following:
You may choose any human services agency (such as, mental health agency, child welfare agency, substance abuse treatment facility) for your response.
Discuss two potential ethical dilemmas related to issues surrounding trust and boundaries in the professional relationship.

Identify the manner in which you would search for eligible funds or assist with proposal or grant writing to secure funds to run your programs. Please include at least 2 or 3 references!!
Direct services professionals often face many types of potential ethical dilemmas. The administrators of agencies that employ direct services professionals are responsible for guiding them in ethical decision making in addition to managing nonclinical staff in order to protect client rights. Human services administrators have to be aware of the activities of the agency at every level as managers of employees who have access to confidential information about clients.
In this assignment, you will read a scenario and determine the best course of action to resolve the ethical dilemma presented.
