ETHICS Committee Revamps!   Please Submit Your Inquiries or Scenarios

In an effort to provide Ethical Practice Tips or respond to scenarios where there is an ethical question, the Board has determined that we will provide members with a monthly ethics column.  This column will provide a tip about ethical practice or it will provide a scenario that involves an ethics question and provide a guide for responding in an ethical manner!  Please submit your inquiries!  We will publish them without your name, or with your name, whichever you prefer!

This column will replace the individual ethics consults.  There are several reasons for this revamp-one is that few members used the individual ethics consults; second is that it seems that many questions are similar–often about boundaries and dual relationships and because of both of these, it seemed that we could be most useful to a large group of clinicians if we posted something on a regular basis that provided information on ethical practice.
