Gatekeeping in Field Education: Case Studies and Ethical Considerations (Virtual)

April 24, 2023

Monday, April 24, 2023, 9:00am-10:00am (PT)

Hosted by the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) New York State Chapter. Field supervisors require support, education, and training but need access to such materials in ‘bite size’ segments. Marist College Social Work Field Education Program has developed a series of 60-minute Virtual Lunch and Learn Series discussing various fundamental aspects of field education and supervision. 


Gatekeeping in social work field education is complicated: Field instructors need to support the student, while also balancing the service and needs of vulnerable clients. This presentation will use case studies and relevant literature to discuss various ethically challenging gatekeeping situations. Participants will play an active role in responding to and discussing the cases presented. In addition, the presentation will explore the unique and complex roles that field instructors and schools of social work play when issues of gatekeeping come to the forefront in a placement setting. 


After the completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the emerging literature on gatekeeping in field education. 
  • Discuss the challenges of gatekeeping in field education. 
  • Discuss models for gatekeeping in social work education. 


This workshop is approved for 1.0 CEUs.

Cost: $0-$25. Registration and more information here
