003Ethics and Law for the
This vignette-based intermediate workshop addresses ethical
decision making, the relationship between ethical and clinical
decision making, and ways to minimize exposure to ethical
liability. The workshop views the APA Ethics Code as a tool to
aid in resolving complex ethical dilemmas, rather than as a list
of ethical requirements and prohibitions, and emphasizes how
psychologists can also use other sources of ethical guidance.
Focus will be on ethical standards relevant to clinical practice,
including those especially likely to relate to a jurisdiction’s law
