Description
Duty-to-protect situations are among the most stressful clinical events. These already difficult situations are complicated when the professional/trainee is laboring under misunderstandings about her or his ethical and legal obligations and when the clinician/trainee does not know how to respond when a potential duty arises. This intermediate workshop is designed to help when the duty to protect may arise and is based on a current and thorough review of the ethical, legal and clinical landscape related to these issues.
Learning Objectives
1. Define the duty to protect and differentiate it from the duty to warn.
2. Summarize the content of the APA Ethics Code regarding the duty to protect.
3. Identify the primary legal issues involved in determining whether the duty to protect applies.
4. Identify at least three situations (in addition to the standard case of possible suicide or homicide) when the duty to protect may arise.
