A 6-hour training with Samson Teklemariam, LPC, CPTM
October 16, 2023
PRESENTATION: Addiction treatment professionals have an obligation to protect patients, the workforce, and the communities we serve by continuously monitoring safe ethical practice. Working with substance use disorders often includes managing the needs and expectations of numerous stakeholders including the patient, their loved ones, state regulations, federal regulations, and the various tiers of ethics the everyday professional helper abides by. This presentation focuses on developing the helping professional’s situational awareness in applying ethical principles in every day complicated scenarios. Participants will examine real-world vignettes with ethical conflict and learn a system for ethical decision-making. Additional topics covered in this presentation will include confidentiality, boundaries, informed consent and health literacy, and clinical documentation principles for safe patient care. As a result of the training:
- Participants will be able to describe foundational principles and progressive updates to confidentiality and protected health information.
- Participants will be able to implement an ethical decision-making model for complicated scenarios with ethical conflict.
- Participants will be able to identify the most common warning signs of potential boundary crossings leading to the most common boundary violations.
