This continuing education course is based upon the Guidelines for Psychological Practice with Girls and Women, developed by a Joint Task Force of APA Divisions 17 and 35 and adopted in 2007.  This in-depth paper examines the social context, research bias and other significant factors that impact the mental health of girls and women.  According to APA, “Given that the majority of those seeking mental health services continue to be females (e.g., Rhodes, Goering, To, & Williams, 2002), special attention to the unique treatment needs of girls and women of diverse backgrounds is warranted (Trimble, Stevenson, Worell, & CEMRRAT2 TF, 2003). The majority of those seeking treatment remains women and girls, and the demographics of the United States population are rapidly changing to increase more diversity in women and girls needing psychological services.”

 

According to the APA, “The aim of this document is to articulate guidelines that will enhance gender- and culture sensitive psychological practice with women and girls from all social classes, ethnic and racial groups, sexual orientations, and ability/disability status in the United States.”   Because these guidelines are aspirational in nature, they provide a framework for what constitutes ethical practice with this group.   APA goes on to state “These guidelines provide general recommendations for psychologists who seek to increase their awareness, knowledge, and skills in psychological practice with women and girls. The beneficiaries include all consumers of psychological practice, including clients, students, supervisees, research participants, consultees, and other health professionals. Although the guidelines and supporting literature place substantial emphasis on psychotherapy practice, the general guidelines are applicable to psychological practice in its broadest sense.”

 

This CEU course serves as an excellent resource for psychologists, clinical social workers and other licensed mental health professionals who work with girls and women and need continuing education in ethics.  This ethics course helps to build skills in working with diversity by outlining the differences in working therapeutically with girls and women.

 

Psychologists, social workers, nurses, mental health counselors and marriage and family therapists can benefit from this course and earn continuing education credits in ethics. This course may also be helpful for other practitioners, such as dieticians and nutritionists who may also need a continuing education course in ethics and who work with girls and women.

 

This course is appropriate for beginning, intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to learn more about ethical guidelines for working with girls and women. It is also a good resource for licensed professionals who need CEUs in ethics and want something a bit different.
