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

August 9, 2022

8:30am–4:00pm 


This training will be remote only.

PRESENTATION: There are many times when clinical practice with clients who have lived experience with mental health and substance use concerns present unique ethical challenges.  These types of challenges are most effectively and efficiently responded to by clinical staff that understand ethical principles and decision making.  This training will provide content regarding common types of ethical decision making and ethical dilemmas.  Ethical issues that are not resolved satisfactorily by utilizing reflective practice skills and the application of professional codes of ethics coupled with a viable ethical decision-making model run the risk of not serving the best interests of all parties.  This training will provide the needed knowledge base to help clinical staff feel more confident in the decisions that they make to resolve ethical dilemmas. 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 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 have lived experience with mental health and/or substance use concerns;
    • Gain an awareness of how utilizing reflective practice skills will promote desired outcomes in the most ethically sound fashion that is client centered;
    • 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.
