Addressing Cultural Mistrust and Early Recovery

NCASPPB: 22-005-S 4 hours SS

Presented by: Allyson Graham, LCMHCA, NCC, MA

About: Early recovery from addiction is a crucial time, as individuals encounter a myriad of experiences for the first time in sobriety. Honesty with their behavioral and medical practitioners during this time is essential in staying healthy. However, if the client doesn’t entirely feel safe, how open and honest will they be? A factor that can impact one’s safety level is cultural mistrust. In this presentation, I plan to explore what leads to cultural mistrust, what it could look like in different situations, and how professionals can help eliminate it when working with others.

Hindsight is 20/20 TOO – (Teaching Other Options) – Rethinking Ethical Decision Making

NCASPPB: 22-008-G 4 hours GSB (ETHICS)

Presented by: Latasha Y. Hicks Becton, PhD, NCC, LCMHC, LCAS, CCS

About: Ethics and ethical decision making are fun!  So many of us get bogged down thinking about ethics and it may even feel like a chore or a box to check. Section I.1.b of the 2014 ACA Code of Ethics states “when counselors are faced with an ethical dilemma, they use and document, as appropriate, an ethical decision-making model that may include, but is not limited to, consultation; consideration of relevant ethical standards, principles, and laws; generation of potential courses of action; deliberation of risks and benefits; and selection of an objective decision based on the circumstances and welfare of all involved.”  This interactive workshop style presentation will provide information about ethical decision-making models, a brief overview of select sections in the code of ethics, and includes opportunities to practice application of an ethical decision making model to case studies using peer to peer supervision.

Participants are encouraged to bring or have ready access to their profession’s code of ethics as well as a deidentified case they would like to consult about in our practice
