Ethics in Professional Counseling:  Updated Practices

This workshop will focus on professional ethics and best practices that are critical for social workers, counselors, and other professional therapists/clinicians who work in a school or clinical setting as clinicians or supervisors.  It is the responsibility of all therapists to possess the necessary skills and knowledge to deliver competent and ethical services to clients.  It also ensures the responsibility of the profession to protect the welfare of every client.

This workshop will review best practices on ethics for clinicians by providing current information and recent updates on ethical codes, review an ethical decision-making model, update policies and procedures including the Illinois Administrative Code of Conduct, and highlight pitfalls for clinicians and supervisors.  This will include looking at the ethical and legal concerns for confidentiality, boundaries, the counseling relationship, informed consent, and documentation.  Opportunity to practice the skills through role play and video scenarios will occur.  Handouts will be provided.
