Description
Having trained as a psychologist, you have now become a manager. Other professionals report to you, and you are responsible for the success of the workgroup and its legal and ethical responsibilities. This intermediate workshop assists you in connecting the dots between doing things right for organizational success and doing the right thing. Highly interactive and building on the experience of the managers in attendance, the workshop addresses ethical issues of psychologists managing in health care, mental health, education and public service.
