Ethical & Moral Junctions in Behavioral Healthcare: Beyond the Standard ‘Clinical-Ethical-Legal’
This is a unique and first-of-its-kind presentation that expands the meaning of ethics in psychology and psychotherapy beyond “codes of ethics” and clearly differentiates it from “risk management”. It will tie it to the heart of ethics, which differentiates right vs. wrong and good vs. bad.
This one hour course will identify 9 ethical-moral junctions that mental health practitioners may face in their line of work. Each of the topics will include a short presentation that helps participants understand the complexities involved in each junction.
The 9 junctions include:
- Recommending illegal potencially helpful psychedelics to pts?
- Execution of death-row inmates?
- Increase the chance of clients’ deaths?
- Complying with mandatory reporting can result in more result in more harm to ‘victims’?
- Denial of lifesaving organ transplants to 'receivers'?
- Increased prisoners' risk for abuse or death?
- Increased probability of patients' suicides?
- Denying peoples’ wish for 'End of Life' option?
- Denying help for women patients seeking abortions?
