Although generally conceptualized as how not to break the rules, ethics have the opportunity to provide a positive outlook for professional conduct. When approached in this manner, ethics can aid in clarifying values, structuring guidelines to therapist-client relationships, and setting high expectations for professional behavior. How these values relate to the normative use of technology will also be addressed, as opportunities for unintentional self-disclosure have increased with the rise of social media. Through vignettes and sharing of personal experiences, we will review a decision-making model for resolving dilemmas, reflect on current personal practice, and identify areas for positive growth.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will discuss the concepts of a positive approach to ethics and assess how positive ethics can be integrated into daily psychology practice.
  2. Participants will apply a 5-step model for resolving ethical dilemmas.
  3. Participants will describe the ethical considerations necessary when using social media.

CE Hours: 3 (Ethics)
