Workshop Description                                      WORKSHOP FLYER

              Several professional disciplines use the term “counselor” to describe their practice.  Effective professionals who work with children, youth, young adults or families, practice under Codes of Ethics that help maintain an appropriate balance between the professional’s responsibility and the client’s autonomy.  The Codes have surprising similarities.

              This workshop on Professional Ethics will compare parallel sections from Ohio Rules of Professional Conduct for Attorneys, and the Code of Ethics from the Ohio Counselor, Social Work and Marriage and Family Therapist Board.  Participants will review their own professional standards, learn more about the standards of other disciplines, and review decisions from court cases and administrative proceedings, in Ohio and around the nation.

              Topics covered will include Professional Competence, Scope of Practice, Confidentiality, Dual Relationships including Sexual Relationships, Fees, Providing Reports for Third Parties, Record Keeping, Preparing Clients for Professional Services, Client Access to Files, Communicating with Concerned Others, Unauthorized Practice, Impaired Practice, Continuing Education and Licensure, and Maintaining Integrity of the Profession.

Counselors who attend will satisfy the biannual Ethics/Professional Conduct requirement for relicensure.

The workshop will be November 28th, from 9-12:30, at Capital University Law School.  Registration is $35.00.  Here is the link to register:
