Shannon Goodwin, an undergraduate speech-language pathology student at Texas State University, received first place in ASHA’s 2016 Student Ethics Essay Award (SEEA) competition for “Unintentional Client Abandonment: How Personal Decisions Impact Others.”
Goodwin receives a complimentary student registration to the 2016 ASHA Convention, a one-year membership in the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association, and $750.
Two other speech-language pathology students also received recognition. Second place—NSSLHA membership and $500—went to Lacy Hefley, Portland State University, for “Lose-Lose: When Intra-Professional Conflict Harms the Client.” Third place—NSSLHA membership and $250—was awarded to Julia Burroughs, University of Cincinnati, for “Continuous Care in an Ever-Changing Field: Client Abandonment.”
The SEEA competition is open to students enrolled in any U.S. communication sciences and disorders undergraduate, post-baccalaureate and entry-level graduate program. For this year’s topic—client abandonment—students presented and resolved an ethical challenge created by inappropriate transition of clinical services.
SEEA, part of ASHA’s efforts to enhance ethics education, encourages students to think about ethical decision-making and creates greater awareness of situations that could pose ethical dilemmas.
The 2017 SEEA topic concerns independent and evidence-based clinical judgement.
