One of the important tasks of supervisors and educators in the human service fields is to provide their fieldwork students with models of appropriate ethical behavior and decision-making. The ethical training that educators provide to students in the helping professions will greatly influence how prepared students feel to navigate through difficult ethical situations when they arise in the field. The goal of this article is to introduce a conceptual framework of “Top 5 Ethical Lessons” for the human service professions that is currently in use by social work and school psychology faculty at a large urban university. Training in the “Top 5” Lessons allows graduate students to come away with a new skill set of engaging in the dialogue of ethical decision-making while simultaneously adhering to their field's ethical principles of respecting individuals, promoting equity, and advocating for social justice.
