Applying Ethical Thinking to Clinical Practice

November 15, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:15 pm

A 3-hour workshop November 15, 2019

presented by Michael Firmin, Ph.D.

Workshop Description


Professional ethical codes provide rules for clinicians to follow and they are enforced by state licensing boards in order to protect the public.  Mental health clinicians’ decisions result from personal-constructs and thinking-paths that result in behavioral actions.  This workshop explores various cognitive processes that clinicians utilize when facing decisions that possess ethical implications and consequences.  Dr. Firmin will review the larger context into which professional ethical codes are framed.  He will help workshop participants to explore how psychologists often come to make decisions that, in some cases, they later regret—and in other instances—they are grateful to have made.  Reoccurring ethical hotspots will be given attention and case studies will illustrate various ethical dilemmas and decision-points


A free light lunch/social hour will be available from 12:00 – 1:00 pm.  Please indicate if you plan to have lunch when registering.

  • To review professional standards and principles of ethical conduct
