About The Event

Clinicians face ethical decisions about care and treatment of clients daily. Insurance companies, agencies and our financial realities make demands on our time and treatment choices and/or limitations. Current events and clinical examples provide the core for ethical challenges and dilemnas that confront therapists daily. Ethical decision making models and processes are addressed in small and large groups.

Objectives: Participants will learn: 1) differences between moral injury, distress and courage; 2) three ethical decision making models; 3)  relationship between moral injury and trauma; 4) three ways to transform moral injury into social action using ethical principles; and 5) the relationship between moral courage and living with integrity
