Common Therapist Mistakes And the Ethics of Owning Them!
An ethics workshop that will make you laugh rather than cringe. Do you sometimes give too much advice or give it too early? Do you validate what you don’t know, get into power struggles by taking the healthy voice, or project your values? If you’re like most therapists, you do! All therapists are human and we all make mistakes. Owning these mistakes allows us to use humor and even poke fun at ourselves a bit. These common mistakes are the kind that may slow down the therapeutic process but generally won’t halt it unless they are made often or repetitively. Reducing common mistakes enables us to increase compliance with ethical codes regarding the boundaries of competence, maintaining competence, and avoiding harm. Finally, practical strategies will be presented that enable participants to minimize making these mistakes.
