The purpose of this workshop is to help participants identify their personal ethics and values and learn how emotions can interfere with a therapist’s willingness to act ethically.  Case examples will be presented which highlight the emotional discomfort inherent in many decision-making situations.  Participants are encouraged to share their own ethical dilemmas.
