There is a reason licensed professionals must complete ethics CEUs each renewal period. Regardless of how many years of experience we have as clinicians, we cannot get so comfortable that we cease to be ethical learners. A frequent crowd-pleaser, this workshop takes a non-legalistic stance towards ethics and challenges participants to recognize and embrace discomfort, the ambiguous, and the gray. Through stimulating media portrayals of therapy, participants will reflect on their own boundaries and professional values while being challenged to consider alternative perspectives without judgment and othering.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explore personal and professional boundaries and how boundaries change depending on context.
  • Identify reasons that prevent professionals from seeking collaboration regarding ethical dilemmas.
  • Identify complex  clinical situations and develop an ethical decision making model.
