Making Sense of the Gray Areas

Central Oregon Association of Psychologists, Regional affiliate of the Oregon Psychological Association presents:     Making Sense of the Gray Areas: Ethics in Technology Use, Rural Practice, and Work with Children and Teens By Michelle Cox, Ph.D. DATE:  Friday April 26, 2019 9 am until 4 pm (Registration starts at 8:30AM) 6 hours Continuing Education Credit Lunch and Light Snacks Included *This workshop meets the ethics requirement for Oregon Psychology licensure Workshop Overview:  Clinicians are often taught ethics in black and white, but any provider with clinical experience knows the shades of gray that make ethical issues complex, and sometimes daunting. Psychologists/Clinicians are people too and sometimes when faced with complex ethical issues, we need help that is clear, concrete, and thorough.

This training starts with an overview of a few key ethical decision-making models for application with all potential ethical concerns. Then, these models are used, with participants, in an engaging manner, to help tackle some common and some unusual ethical problems so participants can see the models in action.  The presenter, Dr. Michelle J. Cox, will apply these models in unique ways as you learn about ethics related to technology use, rural practice issues, and work with children and teens (and their parents). Prepare for a lively discussion, audience engagement, and direct answers to your questions. If Dr. Cox does not have an answer, she knows how to help you find them so you will leave the workshop with clear, concise, and thorough information that will allow you to continue to grow your ethical practice.  Learning Objectives:  Through this workshop, participants will:        -Learn HIPAA-complaint, efficient, and effective methods of communicating with and about clients.
       -Gain knowledge in rural practice strategies that improve marketability while enhancing client confidentiality.        -Demonstrate understanding of current child/teen reporting requirements and processes that reduce liability  and maintain provider/client relationships.  About the Presenter:  Dr. Michelle J. Cox, PhD, LPC, NCC, ACS earned an MA in Counseling at George Fox University and a PhD in Human Development and Family Sciences from Oregon State University. She also completed doctoral minors in Counseling and Gerontology. Her research areas of interest include ethics, older adults, spirituality, and dementia.
