Workshop Description: 

Ongoing clinical practice often contributes to a kind of ethical “drift”.  In addition, the internet, social media, and other technological changes have offered new ethical challenges for psychologists.  Using case examples, discussion, and lecture, participants in this workshop will consider how the APA Ethical Code applies to the changing world of clinical practice.  Special emphasis will be placed on developing psychologists’ 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. 

Learning Objectives

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