About the Conference:

This conference provides participants with an in-depth examination of compelling ethical challenges faced by behavioral and mental health professionals. Building on introductory ethics concepts, this presentation explores difficult ethics cases and practical strategies designed to protect clients and practitioners. A series of challenging ethics cases involving conflicting professional duties will be presented, followed by a discussion of conceptually based, practical ways for professionals to skillfully manage ethical dilemmas.

Key topics include boundary issues, dual relationships, conflicts of interest, confidentiality, privileged communication, informed consent, clients' rights, termination of services, and impaired professionals. The presentation also includes discussion of relevant ethical standards, statutes, regulations, case law, supervision, and consultation.

Continuing education credits were approved for social workers and are being submitted for other professional organizations. The workshop satisfies the three-hour ethics requirements for social workers.
