Description

Ethical issues pose some of the most challenging questions mental health professionals face every day; and the questions change with each advancement in technology and each new piece of legislation — bringing a constant barrage of vexing ethical dilemmas.

This seminar will help you sort out facts from fiction, ethical issues from legal issues, and their application in your practice. You will gain an understanding and an appreciation for the purpose and practice of ethical standards, and learn how to decrease your risk of being drawn into an ethical or legal issue.

The core realities of value-based and value-laden approaches to mental health care pivot on ethics. The personal values, principles, and standards of clinicians define their practices. The approaches, clinician orientations, and philosophies of clinicians must remain within ethical boundaries.

Each registrant will receive a copy of the seminar materials, which is a handy guide during the day. And—as a special bonus to all attendees—you will get access to a dedicated web page with ethics forms and additional references, a valuable resource long after the seminar ends.
