Description

Confidently Navigate Child-Related Ethical Issues

Dealing with any ethical issue can be challenging. When it involves children or adolescents it can be especially confusing, daunting and anxiety-provoking. Mental health professionals can be left with more questions than answers and without a clear method for navigating these waters.

In this skill-building recording, Dr. Terry Casey will equip you to handle whatever ethical challenge might arise involving children, adolescents, and their families. You will learn how to employ a unique ethical decision making model developed by Dr. Casey when dealing with a variety of scenarios, including mandatory reporting, boundaries, divorce and child custody, and virtual relationships.  Using case vignettes, Dr. Casey will guide you through case studies as you evaluate decisions through the lens of applicable ethical codes as well as federal and state laws.
