    Dr. Dawn-Elise Snipes

  • Based on
    Ethics and Psychotherapy in Counseling: Third Edition by Kenneth Pope and Melba J.T. Vasquez (2007)

  • Ethical awareness is a continuous, active process.
    Enemies: Fatigue, habit, stress
    Awareness of ethical standards is vital, but cannot take the place of human reasoning and application
    Awareness of developments is important, but conclusions cannot be mindlessly accepted
    Seven Basic Assumptions
    Copyright CDS Ventures LLC 2011 Unlimited CEUs 12 months $99
  • None of us is infallible
    It is easier to pay attention to other’s ethical behaviors (or lack thereof) than our own.
    Often ethical dilemmas have no clear “correct” answer.

  • Self-awareness of our theory and method
    Provides rationale for actions
    Confirmation Bias: Tendency to seek information that confirms our beliefs or actions.
    Our theory and method must constantly be questioned to ensure it is in the best interest of the consumer
    Judgment

  • Ethical Guides, Laws
    Seem to provide “answers”
    Do not relieve us of ethical responsibility
    Intended to guide, not supplant ethical decision making
    Authorities

  • It must be X or Y
    It is X
    Then it is not Y
    Mutual Exclusivity

  • Giving it a name excuses unethical behaviors
    “Burnout”
    “Compassion Fatigue”
    Nominal Fallacy
    Copyright CDS Ventures LLC 2011 Unlimited CEUs 12 months $99
  • Basing decisions on only factual statements
    Failing to consider ethical, moral or professional standards
    Failing to consider the uniqueness of the individual
    Naturalistic Fallacy
    Copyright CDS Ventures LLC 2011 Unlimited CEUs 12 months $99
  • Focusing on the things you did NOT intend to do, instead of acknowledging the things you did.
    Example:
    “I never intended to violate anyone’s confidentiality”
    I did however intend to take chances sending unencrypted emails because it is easier.
    Denying Motivation
    Copyright CDS Ventures LLC 2011 Unlimited CEUs 12 months $99
  • Throws focus from the misdeeds by focusing on what did not occur
    Nobody died (Although one tried to commit suicide)
    Everyone was provided timely services (Although they were not appropriate to the person served)
    Emphasizing the Positive

  • It is not unethical if…
    We have read about it
    We can identify others who do the same thing
    We did not mean any harm
    We caused harm, but the client also brought it on himself
    We were under extreme stress
    Nobody ever complains
    We did not anticipate the outcomes
    There is no universally accepted evidence that it is
    The Un-Ethics Mantra

  • Trust
    Power
    Given by the state
    Given by the person
    Fundamental power differential
    Caring
    Emotional over-involvement
    Can lead to dual relationships
    Can be done with objectivity
    Fundamental Principles of Therapy

  • A client has come through detox and has been through your program three times already. You have open beds you need to fill. Do you readmit him?
    A counselor tells you she has given her clients her home phone number so they can call whenever they need her.
    A client reveals that she is drinking vodka with seroquel (antipsychotic) every night to pass out so she does not have to know when her husband has sex with her.
    Scenarios

  • A counselor has a caseload of 75 clients. Her day is booked solid. Sally calls in crisis and states she “just cannot do it anymore, and won’t be coming to her appointment.” The therapist tells her to call back when she is ready and hangs up, relieved that she has an hour off.
    Scenarios
    Copyright CDS Ventures LLC 2011 Unlimited CEUs 12 months $99
  • Ethical behavior involves constant assessment of our own behaviors and motivations
    Ethics provide an ideal
    Laws provide a minimum standard
    Ethical behavior involves achieving the greatest degree of ethical behavior while maintaining site of what is legal and best for the client.
