Description

  • Identify ethical issues and pre-empt problems in practice before they arise
  • Conflict resolution strategies to manage ethical dilemmas
  • Manage the ethical risks and benefits of using new and emerging communication technologies in clinical practice
  • Strategies to deal with conflicts of interest and boundary crossings
  • Respond effectively to subpoenas

Tired of the same old information on ethics, errors, and omissions? This course is not a “refresher,” but rather a refreshingly new approach to identifying and managing ethical issues in practice. Resolving ethical issues is not just about knowing your ethical and legal obligations, but also knowing how to deal with clients and colleagues when ethical conflicts arise. Learn an interest-based approach to building consensus with clients and colleagues, as well as managing ethical conflict in a creative win-win manner.

This workshop will provide you with opportunities to practice your new conflict management skills through the use of case examples and experiential learning. Case examples will involve situations related to current issues, including ethical risks of the use of communication technologies, boundary crossings and clients who are involved in court processes. Learn strategies to help you manage your ongoing practice in a manner that reduces ethical risks, as well as strategies for responding to challenges raised by clients, attorneys and professional colleagues.
