This event is SOLD OUT, but is also being offered as Track C of The Fundamentals of Ethical and Clinical Supervision.
Turning Difficult Conversations into Learning Conversations
Ethical discussions by definition are difficult conversations. They often involve different and competing values, goals, understandings and priorities. Frequently there are strong feelings and identity issues at stake. When ethical issues arise, the supervisor has an opportunity to move the difficult conversation into a learning conversation by using a structured approach.
Through the introduction and regular use of Reamer’s model for ethical decision-making, supervisors and clinicians will strengthen skills for identifying and discussing ethical issues on a regular basis. When issues are examined in a methodical way, responsibilities and options become clearer, and next steps are developed and implemented. And while many gifted and ethical clinicians may not agree on the next step in any given situation, having a shared model to approach the conversation is crucial.
This training will utilize two models as guides to how to discuss the most difficult issues in supervision. Case scenarios will involve boundaries crossings and violations; dual relationships; supervisor/supervisee relationship; organizational and worker ethics; discussing feelings and identity issues as they relate to specific clinical situation. The format is information sharing, individual reflection, case discussions and group exercises.
Current and prospective supervisors and clinical directors in substance abuse, mental health and behavioral health settings.
