Positive Ethics: A New and Empowering Approach to Ethical Practice
Enjoy a creative, rejuvenating and inspiring day of art, writing, and re-connecting to the passion that brings us to our work!
Ethics trainings are often experienced as boring, full of legal jargon, and overly simplistic in providing guidelines for managing the complexities of real life therapeutic relationships. How can we go beyond meeting minimal standards and move towards the ideals that bring us to the helping professions? Positive Ethics seeks to nurture the positive values that inspire us to fulfill our highest potential as therapists.
