Ethics Committee

Chair: Cynthia (Thia) Sontag Email Thia   Members of the committee are representative of diverse practices in SW profession. Currently we have 2 School SW, 2.5 in private practice/case management, and 1 in medical SW. The purpose of having diversity in practice settings is to provide for multiple view points on similar topics. Our group meets at least 6 times per year and more when we have an event scheduled to coordinate. We have presented or hosted a presenter every year at the annual conference, done outreach to the SW students, presented ethics workshops for local and rural practitioners, and developed educational tools such as articles, created a folder on the website to archive materials, and started a library for ethics resource materials. Our group meets to discuss ethics topics relevant to current practice. We bring up issues or discuss issues brought to our committee for suggestions to consider from our colleagues.
