Event Description
Introspective Ethics: Using Self-Awareness to Develop Ethical Sensitivity & Enhance Ethical Behavior Tired of attending ethics presentations which focus on the do’s and don’ts, which reiterate principles you already know by heart? This workshop moves ethics instruction to a new level. While knowledge of ethical codes and laws is important, it is not enough. Applying the same principles used in work with clients, this experiential workshop moves beyond instruction about the obvious into the realm of the psychological. Participants are guided toward understanding the internal basis of ethical actions. Through large and small group activities, each individual will identify areas of personal ethical vulnerability and develop a proactive, individualized plan for managing these ethically challenging situations. Upon completion of the workshop, participants will be able to: 1. Review the ethical code, ethical principles and the law as it pertains to counselors. 2. Understand the process by which serious ethical violations are committed by well-intentioned practitioners. 3. Identify potential areas of ethical vulnerability.
