Description
The most common concerns for mental health professionals in rural areas include confidentiality, problematic multiple relationships, and competence. In this introductory workshop, these and related concerns are discussed in an effort to heighten awareness to avoid potential liability. Clinical vignettes, relevant ethical guidelines, and common practical challenges for clinicians in small communities are reviewed. Participant examples of ethical dilemmas related to confidentiality, dual relationship, or competence dilemmas are welcome into the discussion. Decision guidelines are provided as useful, and a peer consult model emphasized.
Learning Objectives
1. Describe examples of confidentiality dilemmas and understand appropriate practice and boundaries in rural communities.
2. Describe risks, relevant ethical code, and ethical decision making to negotiate dual relationships.
3. Provide a rationale for avoiding dual relationships to explain to clients.
4. Describe common challenges and explain solutions for therapists related to competence to treat clients in rural areas.
