{Training Institute} Hugs, Texts and Tweets: Navigating Ethical Dilemmas

Navigating the seemingly ever-growing field of ethical dilemmas is one of our most challenging tasks. As social boundaries relax and personal information is available at the touch of a button, it is imperative that we learn how to deal with potential ethical landmines so that we can continue providing the best care possible to our clients. Knowing how to foresee and leverage ethical dilemmas can make the difference between average and superlative clinical work. In this relaxed, experiential workshop you will learn techniques for dealing with and avoiding the real life ethical dilemmas that face us in this new age of texts, tweets, and pins.

Participants will:

  • Identify ethical dilemmas and treatment implications around self -disclosure and self -discovery
  • Discuss treatment implications of client disclosure of information vs. clinician’s discovery of such information
  • Explore the potential value and risks of intentional and unintentional transparency
  • Apply diagnostic information in the process of their ethical decision making
  • Discuss and implement a step by step process for evaluating potential ethical dilemmas
  • Interact with colleagues around real life ethical issues
