Online Training Description:
Virtually every profession has a code of ethics that guides general practice. Professionals working in the area of trauma, however, can face unique challenges. These can include decisions about treatment methods and timing, disclosure of traumatic events and adverse experiences, personal boundaries of the professional, the use of language (for example, invitational versus prescriptive), and many other considerations. This workshop will be interactive in style, and include discussion and exploration by the participants, all in a welcoming atmosphere of safety and curiosity.
Attendees will learn to
1) Consider implications of trauma that are not explicitly addressed in the codes of ethics of professional organizations.
2) Distinguish between structural and interpersonal professional boundaries
3) Identify two critical elements of professional boundaries (i.e. balancing connection and protection)
4) consider the cumulative effect of experiences not always considered to be traumatic, such as verbal abuse
5) use processes for addressing ethical quandaries
