Section C (Compulsory)

16. “A married woman came to me. She is running around. I am also counseling her husband, and she asks me, ‘Do you think my husband is running around?’ I told her no. And he isn’t. He’s a good man. I wouldn’t tell the husband that the wife is running round if he asks me, but I know damn well she is running round. I have to lie to the husband because if I say, ‘I don’t know’ or ‘I can’t tell you’, or if I refuse to answer on the ground that I have a professional and confidential relationship with the wife, he will believe his wife is running around.”

“Since I am a professional person, I will be believed if I say the wife is not cheating. I am patching up a relationship then. In our culture if you tell a lie with a straight face, it will be believed.

Arab culture is a face-saving culture ; American culture is a guilt-ridden culture. I will not feel guilt at lying. I would feel shame if someone found out that I was lying, but I will act to protect myself from being found out. I sometimes feel I shouldn’t send an Arab client to an American social worker if there is an issue in which guilt and shame are involved.
