Ethics in Treating Couples with Sexual Concerns: Strategies to Protect:

Working with couples in therapy often requires increased awareness of boundaries to create physical and emotional safety. Ethical guidelines and best practices are available to help the counselor make these informed decisions. When concerns around sexual behaviors are presented, their emotionally-charged nature can highlight a need for additional strategies to maintain safety and avoid ethical violations. This training will provide counselors with resources, interventions and practical examples to ethically navigate sexual issues in couple’s therapy.

The S.H.E.R.P.A. Approach to Clinical Supervision

As clinical supervisors, it is our responsibility to walk with and guide supervisees on what can be a complex, challenging journey.  One way to approach this work is by positioning ourselves as trained companions or “SHERPA,” practicing in a manner that is Strengths-Based, Hopeful, Ethical, Reflexive, Practical, and Authentic.  This interactive workshop will offer supervisors a framework for incorporating the components of Gestalt orientation, positive psychology, and character strengths into their current supervision practice.

Goals and Objectives
Ethics: To provide counselors with resources, interventions and practical examples to ethically navigate sexual issues in couple’s therapy.

            Participants will be able to:

1.)    Identify and describe common ethical dilemmas in couples therapy related to sexuality.

2.)    Reference ethical guidelines provided by Ohio and National best practices.

3.)    Discuss and evaluate therapeutic approaches to decrease likelihood of ethical violations.

4.)    Discuss and evaluate therapeutic approaches to ethical boundary setting and repairing.

Supervision: To offer supervisors a framework for incorporating the components of Gestalt orientation, positive psychology, and character strengths into their current supervision practice.

Participants will be able to:

1.)    Become familiar with relevant portions of Gestalt theory and how it can be applied to the process of clinical supervision.

2.)    Discuss the efficacy of positive psychology and a strengths orientation in the supervisory relationship, and will have an opportunity to explore the utility of intentionally incorporating supervisee character strengths into supervision.

3.)    Identify ethical concerns that are unique to the supervisory relationship, and will consider strategies for proactively and reactively addressing these concerns in order to promote authentic, reflexive practices for themselves and their supervisees.
