It is often difficult for victim-serving professionals to balance the ethics of their profession with an ethical response to crime victims. The conflicts of these ethical codes, and the misunderstandings that exist among our colleagues, create tension and mistrust across disciplines. While our roles may be different and our ethical obligations may vary, collaborating with victim service professionals is possible. This session will compare and contrast the ethical responsibilities of health care workers, law enforcement, prosecutors, corrections, therapists, and victim advocates towards the goal of fostering understanding among colleagues and increasing ethical behavior and communication toward victims.


As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:

  • Apply the codes of ethics specific to health care practitioners, law enforcement, prosecutors, corrections, and victim advocates. 
  • Identify the similarities and differences among the different ethical codes of the various professions. 
  • Identify ethical principles for working with victims in any profession. 
  • Describe shared language, which enables collaborative work across disciplines.
