Agenda:

Introduction (5 minutes)

 

Revisiting Ethics in Professional Practice (40 minutes)

Professional education introduces future practitioners to relevant Codes of Ethics. This portion of the program will revisit what professionals should already know about ethics, so that we are all on the same page as we explore further. What do we mean by “ethical”? How is “ethical” related to “legal”?

 

Drawing the Lines: Setting (and maintaining) Professional Boundaries  (40 minutes)

Working closely with clients can challenge the boundaries of professionalism, but setting and maintaining boundaries is important both personally, and professionally. This portion of the program will explore guidance from ethical codes on how to define and effectuate appropriate boundaries with clients.

                       

Keeping Client Confidences: From the Basics to the Difficult (40 minutes)

This portion of the program will explore the concepts of confidentiality and privilege, finding foundations in ethical codes and the law. Work with groups, families, minors (and their parents), and the cognitively impaired will be used to apply relevant concepts.

 

Making the Tough Call: Reporting Suspected Child Abuse and Neglect (45 minutes)

This portion of the program will explore a specific area of practice where professional ethics and legal obligations meet (often in conflict): the role of mandated reporters. Case examples will be used to clarify practice decisions, and current initiatives in policy will be outlined.
