Even the most seasoned clinicians can be faced with moments in therapy that create feelings of confusion or disequilibrium because the therapeutic dynamics or potential decisions we are asked to make can put us on an ethical “slippery slope.” In this workshop we will use actual case examples to process and explore some of those challenges. These cases will highlight issues including: navigating gift giving; the blurring and testing of a variety of boundaries; clients’ subtle requests for a dual relationship; well-intentioned interventions that become enabling; counter-transferential reactions to clients’ narratives and experiences; the use of self-disclosure; transferring and terminating clients prematurely or inappropriately. Special attention will also be paid to therapy dynamics that inadvertently and unethically re-enact trauma.
Participants will also be invited to present their own examples of cases that proved to be ethically challenging as well. As these scenarios are discussed the presenter will weave in the code of ethics from various professional mental health Boards. This workshop meets all ETHICS requirements.
