We have established an anonymous web-based submission form for you to submit ethical dilemmas encountered in your practice for future publication and discussion.

Here's how it works:

1.) You experience a situation in your internship that you think involves ethical decision-making -- a client, for example, asks you to "keep a secret" but you are part of a treatment team; or your research project involves 5 year-old children and you wonder how you can ask for their consent to participate.

2.) You go to the web by clicking on Click Here to take survey and fill out the easy to follow submission guide.

3.) Your anonymous submission is read by a committee made up of an administrator, faculty from field, the Ethical Eye editor, and representatives from your student congress.

4.) The committee will then make a selection of scenarios from your submission to publish for our Fordham community. The publication will include responses from selected faculty and students, creating a community dialogue.

2.) You go to the web by clicking on Click Here to take survey and fill out the easy to follow submission guide.

3.) Your anonymous submission is read by a committee made up of an administrator, faculty from field, the Ethical Eye editor, and representatives from your student congress.

4.) The committee will then make a selection of scenarios from your submission to publish for our Fordham community. The publication will include responses from selected faculty and students, creating a community dialogue.

SWGS 6036 Social Work With Active Duty Soldiers, Veterans and their Families- This course, open to all advanced year social work students, explores the role of social work within the military in meeting the needs of active duty soldiers, veterans and their families. The course begins with an exploration of social work practice within the military from an historical perspective. The changing demographic makeup of the military and the implications for social work practice are also a part of this exploration. Issues related to the development of cultural competence and cultural sensitivity when working with the military are also explored. The course then focuses on developing an evidence-based understanding of the current social service, mental health, and health needs of active duty soldiers, veterans, and their families and the intervention methods being used to respond to these needs. While the needs of soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan are emphasized, the similar and different needs of veterans from previous conflicts are also considered. The challenges being faced by social workers in meeting the needs of military women, single parents, gay and lesbian soldiers and immigrant soldiers and their family members are also explored. Students analyze and critique current methods of intervention at all levels of practice and consider ways that the social work profession could further contribute to meeting the needs of active duty soldiers, veterans, and their families.

SWGS 6038 Agency and Community-Based Assessment and Evaluation Rationale: As professionals who intervene on behalf of vulnerable populations, social workers have an ethical obligation to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions with the individuals, families, organizations, and communities they serve. Contemporary social work practice requires that administrators and practitioners are accountable to multiple stakeholders, including policy makers, funders, agency executives, and clients. Social workers must be prepared to respond to stakeholders using research and quantitative and qualitative research and evaluation measures. Purpose: The purpose of this course is to prepare students for contemporary social work practice that demands that social workers are proficient in evaluating agency and community-based programs. Students who take this course will learn about a variety of evaluation methods, including their purpose, effectiveness, and efficiency. The range of philosophies, methods, and skills commonly used for evaluating human service programs and social work practice interventions will be covered. Special attention is placed on evaluating the extent to which social programs address diversity and empowerment across diverse populations and settings.

*Important Notice on Evidence Based Practice Spring Semester Elective-Many Tuesday Advanced Year students have asked about the Evidence Based Practice elective on Tuesday at 10:50 a.m. There has been a lot of confusion about content of the course. We have been assured by Fordham administration that this course will have a lot of content on service provision to children. For anyone interested in social work with children, this would be an appropriate course. Info: Tuesday, 10:50 a.m.-12:40 p.m. Professor: Dr. Dana Marlowe. Registration begins November 30th. Thank you.

*Spring 2010 Class Schedules- Westchester course offerings for the Spring 2010 semester can be viewed on Fordham's GSS page under the Student Resources/Class Schedules menu option. The direct link is located under the GSS Westchester Links section of the blog.

*Ethical Eye- This November, a newsletter discussing ethics in social work practice -- the "ETHICAL EYE" -- will be published. Our first edition will include thoughts from faculty about ethics in social work practice. Subsequent issues, however, will involve YOU! We have established an anonymous web-based submission form for you to submit ethical dilemmas encountered in your practice for future publication and discussion.

Here's how it works:

1.) You experience a situation in your internship that you think involves ethical decision-making -- a client, for example, asks you to "keep a secret" but you are part of a treatment team; or your research project involves 5 year-old children and you wonder how you can ask for their consent to participate.

2.) You go to the web by clicking on Click Here to take survey and fill out the easy to follow submission guide.

3.) Your anonymous submission is read by a committee made up of an administrator, faculty from field, the Ethical Eye editor, and representatives from your student congress.

4.) The committee will then make a selection of scenarios from your submission to publish for our Fordham community. The publication will include responses from selected faculty and students, creating a community dialogue.

SHARPEN YOUR FOCUS-BE A PART OF THE "ETHICAL EYE"
