How Peer-support is Changing the Face of Mental Healthcare

Tuesday, November 1, 2022 

6:00 – 8:00 PM ET

When culture begins to change, professional laws and ethics can also start to change as an accommodation. This causes multiple problems since the ethical codes are not created on a firm foundation but one dictated by cultural movements. This Webinar is designed to help licensed mental health professionals reason with others in their field about the changes in ethics due to cultural transformations. In this Webinar, three panelists will use other countries as examples to explain the inherent issues with secular ethical codes being changed due to cultural influence. Additionally, they will discuss the importance of using an ethical code that has a firm foundation and will not drastically change over time and how mental health providers can protect themselves from future changes to ethical codes. The panelists will also engage in a question and answer time for participants about specific issues pertaining to ethics and advocacy for mental health professionals.
