Ethical Working: Making Difficult Choices in Therapy (Facilitator: Briony Martin)


The Willows Centre, Swindon SN1 3LQ

Delivery format:

Face to Face

Course fees:

From £45

About the Workshop:

We all know we work according to an ‘ethical framework’ but what does it actually mean to work ethically? What do therapists do when faced with difficult situations, issues and choices? Where do our own moral values fit in our work? And what happens if we get it wrong?

In this practical and interactive workshop we’ll look at the moral values which guide professional therapists, demystify the BACP and NCPS ‘ethical frameworks’ and work through some tricky case studies to build our skills in thinking and working ethically. We’ll look at Equality, Diversity and Inclusion as a particular ethical issue and there will be space for questions and examples from your own training and practice.

We’ll also explore at what happens when things go wrong and how to develop resilience for the messy reality of life that is always part of therapeutic practice.
