Title: The Evolution of the Code of Ethics; Dilemmas, Complaints and Avoiding Errors

The upcoming Region I Network meeting is holding a workshop entitled The Evolution of the Code of Ethics; Dilemmas, Complaints and Avoiding Errors presented by NASW/CT Executive Director, Steve Wanczyk-Karp, LMSW! Throughout the workshop, the NASW Code of Ethics will be covered in detail; how Code’s ethical principles have evolved over the years, and the changes instituted in 2018. The workshop will also examine factors to consider when facing an ethical dilemma, along with review of common oversights that often lead to ethical errors. Participants can expect to come away feeling more secure applying ethical guidelines to their social work practice. Additionally, case exemplars will be covered; providing plausible scenarios for participants to ascertain. Also, the NASW process of filing an ethical complaint will be reviewed; participants will learn how it differs from the process of the Department of Public Health (DPH).

Region I, and the NASW staff, are pleased to share the knowledge and experience of our Executive Director with members! Presenter, Stephen Wanczyk-Karp, LMSW, earned his Master’s in Social Work from Fordham University with a concentration in community organization. Steve has a long history of involvement with NASW; initially he was the Political Director for the New York State Chapter for 1 year, Steve then became Executive Director of NASW/CT. After 10 years as ED, Steve ventured to the national office as the Director of Chapter Services and Continue Education. A couple years thereafter, Steve returned to NASW/CT as Executive Director and has successfully led CT for a total of 27 years! Needless to say, Steve has a multifaceted background with years of experience in direct service, administration and legislative campaigning. He has advocated tirelessly to achieve licensure and confidentiality for social workers, provider status for LCSWs in private practice under HUSKY C & D, managed care reform, welfare reform and mental health & substance abuse parity. He also coordinated the State Social Work Jobs Campaign that achieved preference in hiring for BSWs and MSWs for the position of social worker in state service. Likewise, Steve has worked on numerous electoral campaigns for local, state and federal offices!
