Ethics Training:
This is an ethics training for all social workers. It will provide several engaging learning tools to capture your attention… facilitated by members of the MN NASW Ethics Committee.

The Minnesota NASW Chapter Ethics Committee is chaired by Ruthann Swanson, LICSW, ACSW, and Theresa McPartlin, LICSW. Ruthann retired with 40 years experience in the medical and psychiatric health care setting, including 35 years at the Minneapolis VA Hospital where she served as director of hospital based home care. Theresa is Emeritus Professor at University of St. Thomas and is on the NASW-MN Chapter Board. They will be joined by select members of the Chapter Ethics Committee for this presentation.

This is a workshop for current supervisors and those waiting in the wings.  It will explore several aspects of supervision:  some basics, some common challenges, tips for effective supervision and strategies for solving ethical problems as they arise in supervision.

The workshop will be offered in two sections beginning with a video featuring Kim Strom-Gottfried, a nationally known expert in social work professional ethics.  There will be handouts capturing the video slides so participants won’t have to spend time taking copious notes.  She will kindle more than a few chuckles as she brings to consciousness the serious ethical dilemmas that supervisors can face so you can plan to sit back and listen to her honest wit and wisdom.

Kim Strom-Gottfried is the Smith B. Theimann, Jr. Distinguished Professor of Ethics and Professional Practice at the UNC-Chapel Hill School of Social Work. Her scholarly interests involve ethics, moral courage, and social work education. She is the former chair of the National Association of Social Workers’ National Committee on Inquiry and is active in training, consultation and research on ethics and social work practice. She has written numerous articles, monographs and chapters on the ethics of practice. She is the author of Straight Talk about Professional Ethics and The Ethics of Practice with Minors: High Stakes and Hard Choices.

Members of the MN NASW Chapter Ethics Committee will be available to answer questions and wil facilitate the workshop.
