Identifying and Implementing Ethical Standards for Primary Prevention
This course is based upon an article by Kenneth S. Pope. According to the abstract “This article presents a set of conceptual and procedural issues for establishing formal ethical accountability in the area of primary prevention. Three prerequisites are identified: group identity, recognition of need, and active participation. Areas of ethical concern are categorized and examined in terms of five ancient principles . . . as well as two more historically recent principles. Finally, three processes necessary to the creation of a useful and effective system of ethical accountability are discussed.”
The article provides a mental clinician with information about how to establish ethical standards in the practice area of primary prevention. It is unique in that; according to Pope “. . . there is no formal, comprehensive system of ethics for those involved in primary prevention in human services, no explicit ethical code, and no mechanism for enforcement.”
This course serves as an excellent resource for mental health professionals who work in the area of primary prevention and who require continuing education in ethics. It helps to build clinical skills in both ethics and primary care as a means to earn CEUs.
Psychologists, social workers, mental health counselors and marriage and family therapists can benefit from this course and earn continuing education credits. This course is helpful for practitioners who need CEs in ethics and want to expand their understanding of primary prevention, an important area of clinical practice.
This course is appropriate for beginning, intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to learn more about ethics and primary prevention. It is also a good resource for licensed professionals who need continuing education in ethics.
