CEP13-ETHICS: Healthy Healer, Healthy Ethics
Ernesto Santistevan, Ph.D.
Saturday, June 29, 9am–4:30pm, $120/6 CECs
This workshop will attempt to illustrate how the cause of most ethical and unethical behavior is not a lack of basic knowledge, but is related to the use and misuse of the strengths that bring us into this field. We will address:
•Principles of ethics of the American Counseling Association and the American Psychological Association.
•Personal and professional factors influencing the application of ethical principles, identifying vulnerabilities, and building resilience as the core of an ethical approach.
•Individual factors including therapist fatigue and counter- transference.
•Staying healthy, balanced and managing risk.
•The applicability of ethical principles to clinical practice with regard to:
–Higher risk clients
–Managing requests for information in different situations
–Electronic records and communication
–Specific ethical areas identified by workshop participants
