Most licensed psychologists are required to take continuing education on the topic of ethics. But wouldn’t it be nice to go beyond just reviewing basic concepts you learned back in graduate school and when you were studying for your licensing exams? In this intermediate workshop, the presenter takes those somewhat sterile academic concepts and applies them to everyday practice of psychology. The presenter will discuss key elements of risk management you can implement in your next clinical hour. During the workshop, be prepared to think on your feet and discuss some tough, real life situations with your colleagues by submitting questions and comments online or in-person.
Learning Objectives
1. Review models of ethical reasoning.
2. Reflect upon APA Principles & Standards.
3. Discuss fundamentals of ethical practice.
4. Apply models of ethical reasoning, ethical codes and laws/regulations to their practice of psychology.
