Ethics in Supervision
Corporate wrongdoing, plagiarism cases and other scandals are but a few recent examples of lapses in ethical conduct in modern-day America. Helping professionals are not immune to ethical challenges as they strive to address difficult situations with scarce resources and increased pressures for efficiency. Supervisory personnel bear additional responsibility in helping to guide appropriate conduct in their supervisees.
This workshop reviews key ethical principles for effective supervision and the resources and strategies to successfully implement them. Participants will apply key principles to case vignettes drawn from supervisory practice. In attending the seminar participants will:
- Be familiar with the major tenets on supervision in the ethical codes of the APA, ACA and NASW
- Learn recent findings about ethics complaints as they relate to supervisory activities.
- Practice strategies for weighing and resolving ethical dilemmas in supervision
- Identify resources for continued learning
