This whole series has given me so much to reflect on and grow in awareness. As a Social Worker I have consistently listened to everyone's stories and have been humbled and inspired by every single person who has trusted me to share her story. I have long been taught that, because of our Ethical Code, I am not to share my story with my clients. It was not until the end of this training that I am realizing that this particular ethical rule can actually interfere with Rietz's 3-step plan to combine stories. I am also so much more aware now how this could have been perceived as a power difference. My mind and heart is more than a little blown right now. I will definitely need to reflect more on this and begin to really look at the ethics of my profession, the origin, purpose and meaning.
