Ethical Considerations Event

Ethical Considerations in Treatment of Substance Use Disorders with guest speaker Linda Oxford, LCSW, LMFT

Wednesday, November 30th from 8:30 AM until Noon at Jubilee Banquet Facility, 6700 Jubilee Center Way, Knoxville, TN.

This provocative, cutting-edge, evidence-informed training event explores the ethical challenges unique to the treatment of substance use disorders. The training focus will be on best practice approaches to navigating ethical issues specific to substance use disorder treatment. Specifically addressed are the effect of stigma, shame, and “stereotype threat” on clients, service providers, and the recovery process; the application of ethical principles common to all human service professions to the treatment of substance use disorders; practical steps in an ethical decision-making process that support ethical practice; responding to the high risks of burnout, compassion fatigue, and secondary traumatic stress among substance use treatment professionals; and the critical importance self-care as an essential component of ethical practice.
