Troubling Trends: Ethics of Sex in Therapy (2 CE Hours - APA)

Presented by: Chris McBride, Psy.D.

Location: Administration – 3450 N. 3rd Street, Phoenix 85012

Description:  Inappropriate sexual behavior by those in positions of power is currently in the news every day.  This educational unit is designed to review the history of sexually intimate relationships in therapy as well as discuss how sexual attraction to clients is a significant ethical problem.  The unit will also help clinicians evaluate how the taboo subject of sexual attraction to clients can be addressed in consultation and supervision.  At the conclusion of this unit participants will develop and evaluate their own plan on how to help therapists avoid behaving unethically.
