Share Social & Cultural Diversity Ethics: Justice for All?

Event Details

 

Some of the biggest issues facing clinicians surround ethical practice. Knowing the codes is not enough. Many times we are put in such complex positions with clients that decision-making can provoke varying levels of anxiety. When considering client diversity, how can clinicians effectively conceptualize treatment within the cultural contexts of diverse clients? What is cultural humility and what is its role in developing culturally competent practice? How can clinicians determine answers to questions surrounding beneficence, non-maleficence, and justice in our interactions with all individuals regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation and gender? A highly interactive group format and thought-provoking case vignettes will challenge clinicians to think through diversity-related ethical dilemmas that are occurring in the field today. Related sections of the ACA, NASW, and MFT Codes of Ethics will be incorporated.

 

 LPCA GA Approval of 6 ETHICS Hours.
