Event Details

This training concrete and lively seminar explores the origins of our personal ethics, along with ways to use our ethics in working with clients. Using a model for thinking about ethics in a practical, real-world action-focused manner, this lively seminar uses lecture, video and personal reflection activities as building blocks to renewed selfawareness of personal ethical behavior. Knowing when – or how – to do the right thing has never been easy. Behaving ethically is even harder in today’s fast-paced world of fluid values and changing social climate. The increasingly present expectation to tweak personal ethics in service of compassion, workplace requirements, cultural issues or sheer mental/physical exhaustion further complicates the dilemma of knowing when – and how to do the right thing. Beginning with a new way to look at ethics-in-practice, participants will discover a fresh awareness of their own ethics and will gain practical tips for ethical behavior that promotes common ground. Concrete techniques for behaving ethically in an increasingly fragmented world, without compromising personal values, will be presented.


At the end of this seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the difference between legal issues and ethical issues;
  • Use a three-part model to resolve ethical issues with all populations, inclusive of culture, age and socioeconomics;
  • Identify three stages of power and how to move between them, as a means of measuring ethical development;
  • Use the relationship of hidden values in personal, cultural and clinical settings to promote ethical development; and
  • List at least three reasons why one – and five -minute activities promote ethical development.
