This is not a training where we’ll review all of the ethics rules that you already know. After all, you already signed off on a code of ethical conduct as a part of gaining a professional credential or as mandated by your employer.  You have a lot of obligations in this regard. Obligations for which you can be held accountable. Instead, join us for this six-hour ethics training that moves well beyond a focus on boundary issues and addresses issues related to sex and sexuality, countertransference, use of social media, culture/race/ethnicity, issues of power and control, professional identity and other topics that have the potential to get in the way of effective and meaningful therapeutic relationships with the potential for harm to the client and professional suicide for the counselor. After all, Ethics, as that branch of philosophy that attempts to discern “right” behavior, is most often dependent upon the exploration of context as a deciding factor in any ethical analysis. If I can accept a gift from a friend or neighbor, what’s the harm in accepting a small gift from a client? Is there a circumstance in which it might be acceptable to accept a gift from a client? If so, what’s the difference? We’ll spend considerable time looking at these contextual nuances with many issues common to clinical practice that might apply in the specific environment of behavioral health and the part you might play in promoting a practice based upon integrity.
