GCCF Conference Watch, August 17, 2017 -  Slippery Ethical Dilemmas (5 ethics hours)

Each year at the conference, we offer 5 ethics  hours to satisfy professional licensing requirements.  Attendees requested that we offer some of the hours as a pre-conference session so they may participate in more of the other workshop sessions.  This works well for everyone, so again this year we will have a pre-conference ethics session combined with one additional regular workshop ethics session to give attendees a total of 5 hours. Because the pre-conference session begins at 8:00 am, those who are attending from out of town might want to stay overnight. Please ensure you register, and make your room reservations early to ensure you secure your space.  The ethics workshop is also open to those who are not seeking professional CE. The full session is scheduled as follows: 

(parts 1 & 2 of 3)  Wednesday Oct 25, 8:00 am – 11:30 am
(part 3 of 3) Wednesday, Session B 3:15 pm – 4:45 pm

Presenter: Jeffrey Lawrence, Vice President of Programs - The Methodist Homes for Children and Youth
Recognizing that “the best defense in any challenge is a good offense” Dr. Lawrence will explore with participants a range of ethical dilemmas involving such issues as confidentiality, informed consent, gifts, dual relationships and third party referrals. In lecture and small group discussions, participants will examine how to respond to a range of challenging ethical situations.
