Ethics & Cultural Competency: Intensive Certificate



Ethics are not always absolute and are often complicated by cultural issues, beliefs, and values. Situations such as whether to accept a gift from a client, encountering a client in a social situation, or living in a small community, as well as more serious issues such as dual relationships, therapeutic touch, and countertransference are influenced by many factors, including culture. When therapists and counselors lack sufficient training, or become complacent or behind on ethics and cultural competency, they may find themselves at risk of losing their professional license, damaging their professional reputation, or encountering legal difficulties due to ethical mistakes or violations.

Learn to address difficult and often complex ethical situations that arise when working with clients. Highlighted issues include clarification of personal values, managing dual relationships, confidentiality and technology, cultural humility, physical touch in therapy, living in smaller communities, and confronting sexual attraction. Dr. Frances Patterson will use didactic, electronic media, and experiential learning techniques, allowing you to explore the dangers of ignoring personal feelings and not addressing issues that arise during sessions with clients. The information you learn will leave you more confident in your ability to manage difficult ethical situations and the cultural issues that often intersect with them.
