An occasional interactive review of applied ethics is crucial to maintaining (and keeping intact) a judgment-solid and client welfare centered therapy practice. Even the cases that we relegate to the extreme in terms of examples of grave clinical error often don’t start out, but progress toward, the worst of infractions carrying the most dire consequences. It’s important to maintain clinical ethical awareness as your therapy career progresses, the client landscape evolves, and the world of practice changes with time. Ongoing education is an important part of this effort!
Join us for a deep dive into ethics violations by professionals that resulted in board sanctions, court proceedings and/or even imprisonment. Jodi Geis-Crowder, LPC, a seasoned clinical ethics expert, supervisor, and trainer, will take you through a review of ethical codes and cases in which professionals committed grave errors in judgment and ethical decision making which resulted in sanctions that in some cases were career ending. You will come away from this training with a thorough ethics review and ethical decision-making model to protect your license and avoid sanctions or legal action over the long term.
In addition to the below Objectives, this live webinar will also touch on the following:
- Describe two aspects that are most important for good client care and to avoid legal sanctions.
- Describe two reasons why consulting with a meta supervisor or consultant is paramount to maintaining an ethical practice.
- Name two precedent setting cases that were influenced by poor clinical and ethical judgement by the counseling professional.
- Identify three specific aspects of ethics that were overlooked in the precedent setting cases and how to avoid them.
- Identify three points that should be part of every decision-making model.
