Online workshop with Nikki Reeves
When ethical standards and guidelines are written with an eye on complaints procedures and regulation, how do we ensure that we are embedding ethical thought and consideration into our daily practice?
Do we only consider ethical issues when we find ourselves in a difficult situation? – when our response is enveloped in panic and fear of having done something wrong? We can have fear of approaching ethical discussion because it can feel woolly and unclear and leave us with a sense of uncertainty and error.
This workshop will consider how we can hold and examine ethical issues from an engaging and productive perspective, which does not suggest punitive consequence, ie “wrong” versus “right”, but rather with vitality and enthusiasm, acknowledging that as Counsellors and Psychotherapists we are thoughtful, fair, caring and considerate in our work with our clients.
