About this Event

This seminar addresses the ethical principles on which all human service endeavors are based and the specific areas of practice where boundary issues arise (including HIV+, confidentiality, working with peers who are in recovery, cross-cultural concerns, the use of Psychiatric Advance Directives, and other issues related to legality and ethics).

Practice concerns that arise in different roles and practice settings (non-traditional services) are specifically examined, including some ethical concerns regarding practice in the context of a managed care environment.

This seminar is free of charge and provides PCB and SW/LPC credits.

Course Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  • List the ethical principles of all practice in human services
  • Explore issues regarding role and practice boundaries
  • Review some differences in law and regulations governing mental health and substance-related treatment agencies and practitioners, and their effects on integrated practice
  • Identify areas of operation within a managed care environment that may present specific challenges to ethical practice, including ways to reduce such risks
  • Discuss personal advocacy as central to the ethical practice of one’s profession
