Teaching Ethics in Clinical Supervision: Enhancing Decision-Making Quality with Wayne Scott, MA, LCSW

Please join us for the upcoming training, Teaching Ethics in Clinical Supervision: Enhancing Decision-Making Quality with Wayne Scott, MA, LCSW on Wednesday, May 15th from 8:30am-4:00pm (registration starts at 8:00). The training cost is $110 - Includes 6 CEUs from ACCBO. All proceeds go towards the VOA Al Forthan Scholarship to support students who come from families impacted by addiction.


In Plato’s Meno, a student asks the philosopher Socrates, "Is virtue something that can be taught? Or does it come by practice? Or is it neither teaching nor practice... but natural aptitude or something else?” One important purpose of clinical supervision is providing a forum for reflection on clinical ethics as they apply to dilemmas that arise when working with challenging clients. "This day-long workshop provides an instructional and reflective forum for clinical supervisors and the people they supervise about how to use the supervisory relationship to promote rigorous critical thinking about ethics and to deepen their supervisees' capacity to deconstruct, analyze, and resolve ethical dilemmas.
