About the Course

Through case examples, discussion, and lecture, participants in this workshop will consider how the ethical codes apply to the practical world of counseling and special emphasis will be placed on developing professionals’ understanding of decision-making processes used in arriving at ethical courses of action in the context of a changing world.

The workshop will highlight issues of informed consent, competence, confidentiality, and boundaries/multiple relationships. Using case studies and vignettes, professionals will be invited to consider what might be the best course of action in a variety of scenarios presenting ethical dilemmas.

As a result of this workshop, participants will:

  1. understand the assumptions and theories behind ethical decision-making models
  2. identify and explain a practical model for ethical decision-making
  3. explain how ethical decision-making models can apply to issues of informed consent
  4. explain how ethical decision-making models can apply to issues of competence
  5. explain how ethical decision-making models can apply to issues of confidentiality
  6. explain how ethical decision-making models can apply to issues of dual relationships
