Speaker: Benjamin E. Caldwell, Psy.D.
In this Law & Ethics update, we will review recent changes to state law, discuss the role of technology in modern practice, and engage in a deep discussion of the morals and values that underlie individual ethical decision-making processes. Difficult decisions without clear or easy answers will be the focus of the day. Through the use of case examples, this workshop will show how our individual morals and values influence therapy work even when we seek to appear neutral; how to identify your own morals and values relevant to your practice; and why owning those values matters.
We wanted to enhance this annual event and have booked the San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas. Visit their website. This venue provides us with an outdoor patio where we have decided to add on an option to include a boxed lunch. We are finalizing the exact details but wanted to let you know this option is now available for an additional $10 when you register.
