Ethical Myths and Mysteries

Posted: July 14, 2017

Program Description

Have you ever wondered where conventional wisdom comes from?  Do we always have to give clients three names when making a referral, or always warn identified third parties when a client threatens them, and is it really a good idea to get a suicidal client to sign a “suicide contract?”  Where are these things written?  Where did they come from?  This workshop will look at some common risk management and ethical beliefs and examine the rationale behind them.  Do these ideas originate in professional standards, principle-based ethics, or are they myths?  Clinical vignettes will be presented and participants are encouraged to share their own ethical dilemmas.
