NP0017 Handling Today's Hidden Ethical Dilemmas

This blog focuses on discussion regarding the course NP0017 Handling Today's Hidden Ethical Dilemmas.

NP0017, Ethics, Session 3, Clifton Mitchell


Join Clifton Mitchell for a practical discussion on the latest legal developments on therapists’ responsibility to handle self-injurious behavior in clients, report abuse or rape, and handle right-to-die issues. Mitchell will delve into significant legal and ethical situations and discuss practical case studies that’ll help you better understand the best ways to deal with these important issues—ethically and legally speaking—in the consulting room.

After the session, please take a few minutes to engage in the Comment Board and let us know what you think. What did Mitchell discuss that was new to you?

    I would really like to thank you for this encompassing discussion. I have never thought about what to do regarding cutting, statutory rape, etc. The guidance and opportunity to evaluate real stories was incredibly helpful.

    I completely connected with the idea of feeling guilty with only meeting the standard of the law. After working in the social service field for 5 years (residential and in-home services), I walked away concluding that this world was a bunch of sick people caring for sick people. I couldn't believe the number of coworkers I had that were dealing with various addictions that I believed could potentially harm clients either physically or emotionally and at the least subject clients to "sloppy therapy." So Clifton, thank you for this informative discussion and if there is any way possible you could possibly shed some light on the subject of duty to warn when the therapist is impaired that would be much appreciated.

    I have been taking this ethical course NP 0017. I loved Clifton Mitchell's presentation between the law and the code and mental health professionals duties. He had excellent examples of situations that moved my understanding to another level. This represents one more of the sessions that I will need to listen to at least 2-3 times. I am grateful it is on for a year. I especially liked how close Clifton Mitchell adhered to his outline/slides presented beforehand, where I could make notes right on my print out of the slides. It helped me to track what he had to say.
