Description
This vignette-based intermediate workshop addresses ethical decision making; the relationship between ethical, clinical, legal, and risk-management decision making; and ways to minimize exposure to ethical liability. The APA Ethics Code is used as a tool to aid in resolving complex ethical dilemmas through a process of ethical reasoning, rather than as a laundry list of ethical requirements and prohibitions. Focus is on ethical standards relevant to clinical practice, including those especially likely to reflect or interact with law and regulations, and sources of ethical guidance.
Learning Objectives
1. Identify a process for resolving legal and ethical dilemmas that includes recognizing ethical, legal, clinical, and risk-management domains of decision making and their potential interplay.
2. Describe the relationship between a psychologist's legal and ethical obligations.
3. Identify areas that present special legal and ethical concerns to practicing psychologists.
4. Identify concrete steps for psychologists to minimize their exposure to legal and ethical
liability.
5. Describe the relationship between clinical practice and legal and ethical risk management.
6. Identify a process for applying clinical principles to emerging or novel professional practice
situations.
7. Apply the process for resolving legal and ethical dilemmas to emerging areas of practice where standards may be uncertain (e.g., electronic media).
