WestCoast Children’s Clinic presents:

Law and Ethics Update  

Kymberly Smith Jackson  

November, 2017

9:00 am – 4:00 pm

Light breakfast and lunch will be provided.

Workshop Description: 

Working with youth in multiple systems often invoices ethical and legal decision-making on the part of service providers. Ethics is more than just following rules. Fundamental ethical practice goes beyond “the rules”. As aspirations go, well-developed ethical people develop habits and qualities that allow them to succeed at their purpose; and to do so, in spite of and amidst daily challenges. By extension, the pursuit of professional ethics allows service providers to hone professional ethical dexterity, and thus, succeed at their professional purpose. This training session is intended to assist service providers and other professionals who work to deliver the services to youth, develop skills that empower them to actualize ethical insights and concretize professional ethical fluency. The aim of this training is to upgrade the tools in service provider’s existing “professional ethical toolkit,” and thus, empower them to better address ethical issues and dilemmas that show-up in their daily work with youth, their family, and with the community.

6 CE Credits will be available for MFTs, LCSWs, and Psychologists.
