Event description

Description

B O U N D A R I E S. They're the hallmark of clinical ethics. They help us to stay true to our purpose and focused on our role as professional helpers. They protect clients from matters that can distract or interfere with getting their needs met. Boundaries uphold the integrity and public trust of the profession.

But boundaries aren’t necessarily universal. Culture, privilege and social location, ethnicity, geography, and socioeconomic class status: these factors can complicate our perception of the right thing to do in any given situation. Is what ways do clinical ethics reflect the worldview of the dominant culture? How do we make sound, client-centered ethical decisions when working with people from non-dominant, oppressed, and marginalized positions?

Intended to satisfy the mandatory requirement for six-hours of continuing education in ethics, this workshop will help professionals identify, deconstruct, and address ethical dilemmas that emerge in human services practice with diverse client groups. The workshop reviews distinction between values, both cultural and personal, and clinical ethics, and introduces a collaborative model for applying critical thinking to the resolution of common and not-so-common dilemmas.

For this special year-end workshop, facilitator Wayne Scott, MA, LCSW will be joined by Danette C. Otto-Gillespie, LCSW, a therapist and public speaker in Portland, Oregon. Danette has worked in community mental health and private practice, diversity training, quality improvement, mentoring, higher education and research. She obtained a Master’s of Social Work from the George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, and has been a licensed clinical social worker since 2007.
