Ethical Conflicts in Psychology


This is a virtual event, accessible online. Access instructions will be provided after registration.


Psychologists grapple with ethical dilemmas as a matter of course—less in the context of a battle with personal demons than in recognition that there are many paths to addressing the needs of patients, clients, students, colleagues, and ourselves.  Failure to cultivate an evolving understanding of relevant codes and guidelines can ruin interventions that otherwise are motivated by the very best of intentions.  This workshop offers practice-oriented guidance, with a scholarly basis, in such areas as ethical code enforcement, learning codified ethics, applying codified ethics, confidentiality, privilege, multiple relationships, psychological assessment, psychotherapy, research, teaching, supervision, forensic settings, and record keeping.
