Description of Presentation:
Participants in this four-hour advanced workshop will review the 2010 NASP Principles for Professional Ethics with an emphasis on contemporary issues of confidentiality and privileged communication. After a brief review of an ethical decision-making model, participants will practice the model in small-group interactive sessions. Using authentic situations faced by school psychologists, the workshop will provide clear examples of practices that comply with standards for professional conduct. Practice cases will address challenging ethical and legal situations often faced by those working in school psychology. Instructional strategies will include lecture and small- group discussion. Participants will also learn about necessary resources, and make specific plans, for implementing the problem-solving model in daily practice. This workshop is appropriate for practitioners working with students in all grade levels.
