Course awards 3 CE Ethics per COMAR 10.42.06
This course brings real-world context to ethical concerns often experienced by professionals in practice. Through an exploration of boundaries, confidentiality and mandated reporting, this course will provide a framework to contemplate ethical dilemmas and make informed decisions that insulate professionals from legal liability while protecting clients from harm.
Working closely with clients can challenge the boundaries of professionalism, but setting and maintaining boundaries is important both personally, and professionally. This workshop will explore guidance from ethical codes on how to define and effectuate appropriate practice. The concepts of confidentiality and privilege will be discussed, finding foundations in ethical codes and the law.
The challenges posed through work with groups, families, minors (and their parents), and the cognitively impaired will be used to apply relevant concepts. Case examples will be used to clarify the applicability of these areas of ethics in practice decisions, including the reporting of suspected child maltreatment. Learn from a celebrated experienced attorney and therapist and gain clarity and confidence in your practice.
Upon the completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Understand the ethical code provisions as they relate to practice with clients/patients at the micro and mezzo levels.
- Recall at least 3 limitations on practitioner relationships with clients, as outlined in relevant ethical codes.
- Understand the expectations for keeping client information confidential in their professional practice.
- Recite 2 ways to competently discuss with their clients the professional obligation to keep client information confidential.
- Appropriately respond to ethical and moral conundrums faced when making the decision to report by applying a framework to assist in the decision making process.
