socialworker98 in Denver, Colorado

A coworker of mine is a social worker who has been seeing the divorced parent of a child who is seeing a social worker that she supervises. My coworker typically holds group sessions for the parents to provide extra information/explain information and for referrals. The parent and my coworker began meeting professionally, but this has led to informal meetings as well. They have begun a relationship, but it is my understanding that my coworker has referred the client elsewhere, terminating their professional relationship. Is this ethical?

Really, you are kidding ? Of course it is not allow by the norms of the profession, any social work, counselling, or D & A. Jobs are so hard to come by these days, why risk you job.
