Tough Calls, Moral Dilemmas, Technology and More
presented by: Benjamin E. Caldwell, PsyD, LMFT
Our morals and values inevitably influence our work. When we have clear legal and ethical standards to guide us, we defer to those standards. But often, when faced with difficult decisions, our standards offer conflicting guidance, or none at all. This can confuse clients, who wonder whether their therapist will truly understand or support their choices. Through the use of case examples, this workshop will show how our individual morals and values influence therapy work even when we seek to appear neutral; how to identify your own morals and values relevant to your practice; and why owning those values matters.
* Identify at least two personal morals and values most relevant to your psychotherapy practice
* Differentiate between a personal opinion, clinical opinion, advice giving, and imposing personal values
* Construct a framework for clinical and ethical decision-making that integrates personal morals and values in a manner that is within professional ethical boundaries and appropriate to your clientele
* Identify three common frameworks for making value-based decisions
* Identify at least two implications from court cases involving mental healt students' moral decision making
