This is a Core level training which will be a thorough, but introductory presentation of the topic. With an understanding, a framework, and a common language, individuals and groups can begin to work through the most paradoxical and convoluted ethic issues. An essential part of navigating ethical dilemmas is to have a framework for how to view ethics. The purpose of this training is to familiarize the attendees with basic concepts of ethics and important laws that apply to engaging in counseling individuals, especially those with co-occurring disorders. The training will be a lecture and forum style, including opportunities for practicing critical thinking.
