    Managing Ethical Dilemmas in the Counseling Implications for Behavioral Health Providers

    Dr. Lee A. Underwood

Is the client old enough to comprehend the seriousness of treatment? How is confidentiality maintained when dealing with complicated dynamics? Is the victim telling the truth about abuse and neglect and if not, how should it be managed? Should certain clients who are low risk be placed in restrictive living programs? How do you motivate a person in denial? What happens when personal and professional boundaries are compromised? How are complicated clinical supervision sessions managed? These issues and others will be explored during this training. This presentation will review the ethical code of conduct for providers, paying special attention to those areas that related to the indicated controversial issues. This presentation will present case law and case studies that have precedence in managing ethical dilemmas. Participants will be presented with a model that fosters collaboration with others in managing difficult situations.

    Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy - what is it? Why does it work? What does the research say? EMDR therapy is a research-validated treatment approach utilized by thousands of clinicians worldwide to treat a wide variety of issues with which clients present. You likely have heard of EMDR by now, first published in 1989, and recently discussed by Prince Harry in his documentary with Oprah Winfrey on mental health. You may know only what others say about this therapy, but not much about its theory, approach and validity. EMDR therapy has ample research, of the "gold standard" kind, that shows its effectiveness. Are you one of those few individuals who is skeptical, but have not had time to read the research? No one in the mental health field knows for certain how any form of therapy works, even though we have some ideas. This is true for EMDR therapy as well, but we have several theories about why it works, and these will be presented with the research supporting these ideas. While we will not be debating the effectiveness of EMDR therapy as it is well-established, we will discuss the research, the theories, and the mechanisms.

    Learning Objectives:

    Participants will be able to:

    1. Describe the Adaptive Information Processing Model underlying the EMDR psychotherapy approach and its foundation in research.
    2. Describe at least 3 important existing research studies relating to the effectiveness of EMDR therapy.
    3. Describe 3 theories of the mechanisms of EMDR therapy and the associated research.
