Ethics Consultations

As a benefit of membership in WSSCSW, if a clinician is facing an ethical dilemma, he or she can request a consultation with our Ethics Committee. The ethics committee offers professional, consultative support to help in the consideration of ethical question. Please note that this service is not regulatory or prescriptive, however. It is meant to assist clinical social workers to clarify practice issues. The ethics committee may offer readings, discussion points, or refer the clinician to related resources.

In your request, include the following information:

  • Your Ethical Question
  • Details of the dilemma (please keep confidentiality)
