REGISTER | FLYER Workshop on Research Ethics

Sponsored by the Mandel School’s Office of Research Administration and the Doctoral Program, this year’s Research & Training Colloquia are part of the Centennial Speaker Series and are “Featuring Our Own,” spotlighting speakers from the school’s doctoral and master’s alumni.

For this workshop on April 22 the topic and speaker is:

“Ethical Research: Beyond Fraud and the IRB” presented by Kimberly J. Strom-Gottfried, MSW, PhD1993, LISW. Too often, discussions of research ethics center on the steps needed to avoid fraud or protect human subjects. These topics, while important, are only a fraction of the considerations for ethical research, and excessive attention to them obscures other important and meaningful considerations. Ethical dilemmas are inherent throughout the research process, from the decision about what to study and how to study it, through analysis and dissemination of findings. This presentation will address and illustrate these dilemmas and offer recommendations for strengthening research integrity.

Kim Strom-Gottfried received her MSW from Adelphi University and her Ph.D. from the Mandel School. She is the Smith P. Theimann Jr. Distinguished Professor of Ethics and Professional Practice at the UNC-Chapel Hill School of Social Work where she teaches in the areas of direct practice, education, and human resource management. Her scholarly interests involve ethics, moral courage, and leadership and she is active in training, consultation and research on these topics. She has written over 60 articles, monographs and chapters on ethics and practice and she is the author of Straight Talk about Professional Ethics and The Ethics of Practice with Minors and the forthcoming book Cultivating Courage.  

Mandel School students receive 3 PD hours for attending (online and intensive weekend students who watch via livestream can receive 3 PD hours by submitting a brief summary to their field advisor). On-campus students can also visit with the speakers at 1:00 p.m. prior the colloquia for “Advice From Mandel School Alumni,” an informal session in the Mandel Center Lounge.
