Description
This vignette-based intermediate workshop addresses ethical decision making, the relationship between ethical and clinical decision making, and ways to minimize exposure to ethical liability. The workshop views the APA Ethics Code as a tool to aid in resolving complex ethical dilemmas, rather than solely as a list of ethical requirements and prohibitions, and emphasizes how psychologists can also use other sources of ethical guidance. Focus will be on ethical standards relevant to clinical practice, including those especially likely to relate to a jurisdiction’s law and regulations.
Learning Objectives
1. Identify a process for resolving legal and ethical dilemmas.
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).
