About the Seminar:

At one time or another, every helping professional encounters an ethical dilemma. We will discuss foundations for ethical decision making and a model to make this process a bit clearer. Our focus will be on the professional relationship, client self-determination and value conflicts that can arise. We will examine several case studies, share experiences and find ways to avoid ethical pitfalls. Professionals will leave this seminar with a better understanding of the process of ethical decision making. The seminar satisfies the ethic requirement for license renewal.
