WHEN: Friday, April 28, 2017
WHERE: TROY UNIVERSITY RIVERFRONT CAMPUS
1510 Whitewater Avenue, Phenix City, AL 36867
Facing ethical challenges can be, well, challenging! Ethics are ever-changing and evolving, as are the situations with which we might be faced as clinicians.
During this training, we will utilize lecture, discussion, and a variety of vignettes to explore ethical challenges which may be faced by child clinicians, offering participants the opportunity to explore how best to respond to the challenges in the presented scenarios. Additional focus will be placed on issues such as informed consent and assent, custody arrangements, and confidentiality.
As well, there will be an exploration of the APT Play Therapy Best Practices and the Paper on Touch – suggested guidelines to working with children in therapy. Additionally, we will explore contemporary challenges which many child clinicians are faced, such as the incorporation of social media and the intersection of ethics and the legal system.
After the workshop, participants will be able to:
- Explain an ethical scenario which may commonly create ethical challenges for child clinicians.
- Express knowledge of the Association for Play Therapy paper on Play Therapy Best Practices.
- Recognize what constitutes an ethical dilemma.
- Discuss steps in an ethical decision making model.
- Differentiate between physical and legal custody
- List two ethical issues relevant to implementation of technology in child and play therapy practice.
Workshop Session…………………………12:30-4:00 pm
(NOTE: 15 minute break will be taken in morning and afternoon)
