Ethics in Forensic Practice | Saturday, September 26, 2020
This ethics workshop uses a case-based approach with active discussion to consider a number of ethical issues as they pertain to forensic practice. Cases focus on competence in general and with culturally and linguistically diverse individuals as well as managing complex professional relationships. Ethical principles from psychology and psychiatry are explored and applied to different cases.
Psychologists attending this workshop will be able to
- identify and distinguish main ethical mandates in civil and criminal forensic cases,
- use an ethical decision-making model to manage a range of ethical dilemmas in forensic matters, and
- identify key ethical principles and obligations as applied to a number of diversity issues.
