    A 6-hour Training with Scott Meyer, MSW, Ph.D., NH LICSW, BCD

    June 8, 2022

    8:30am–4:00pm 


    This training will be remote only.

As a result of this training participants will:

      • Learn techniques to best respond to a range of challenging ethical dilemmas that can be presented when working with people who have lived experience with mental health and/or substance use concerns;

      • Learn techniques to best respond to a range of challenging ethical dilemmas that can be presented when working with people who are experiencing mental health and/or substance use concerns; and
      • Learn ethical dilemma prevention techniques to monitor, reflect upon and improve their own use of self and personal boundaries in their professional work with clients who are experiencing mental health and/or substance use concerns.
