Clinical Case Illustrations
Ethical practice is a way of recognizing and thoughtfully resolving, to the best of one’s ability, the inevitable conflicts that arise in our work.
Decision making can be fraught with uncertainty, perhaps even shame, as we work through the options. Laws and codes give us some structures but relatively few clear answers for the complexities of clinical practices.
In this discussion and experiential based on-going series, we explore the issues we’re facing, the decisions we’re making, and the implications for our practice. Simple self nurture activities are integrated to reflect the perspective that best practices require a well functioning practitioner.
Our discussions focus on identifying various ethical dilemmas from true case illustrations. Participants are encouraged to submit issues from their own practices that can be used to enhance everyone’s learning. Submissions can be sent to Heather at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the session so she can be prepared, and make room for your concern. Please ensure that all identifying information has been removed.
