The College of Education & Human Development's Department of Counseling and Psychological Services (CPS) will host "Ethical Decision Making in a Changing World," scheduled for Friday, June 21, from 8:30 a.m. - 4 p.m. in a virtual format. 

Ongoing clinical practice often contributes to a kind of ethical “drift.” In addition, the internet, social media, telehealth, artificial intelligence and other technological changes have offered new ethical challenges for mental health clinicians. Using case examples, discussions and lectures, participants in this workshop will consider how the ethical codes apply to the changing world of clinical practice. Special emphasis will be placed on developing clinicians’ understanding of decision-making processes used in arriving at ethical courses of action in the context of a changing world. The workshop will highlight issues of informed consent, competence, confidentiality and boundaries/multiple relationships. Using case studies and vignettes, clinicians will be invited to consider what might be the best course of action in a variety of scenarios presenting ethical dilemmas. 

Jeff Ashby, professor and co-director of the college's Ken Matheny Center for the Study of Stress, Trauma and Resilience, will lead this virtual workshop. He is a licensed psychologist and a Diplomate of the American Board of Professional Psychology. Ashby has taught ethics at the graduate level for more than 20 years and has served as chair of the ethics committee for the International Association of Play Therapy, an ethics content expert with the State of Georgia Psychology Board and is a current member of the Georgia Psychological Association Ethics Committee. He has made over 150 presentations at professional conferences and authored/co-authored more than 120 articles in refereed journals, numerous book chapters and three books.

This is an online workshop and offers six hours of continuing education credit for counselors, social workers, marriage and family therapists and psychologists.
