Conducting an Ethical Vocational Evaluation or Career Assessment
June 15 - 17, 2020
Registration Status: OPEN
Registration Ends: Monday, June 8, 2020
Vocational evaluators, career assessment professionals, and rehabilitation counselors are challenged everyday to practice ethically in a changing environment. We often practice in isolation with no clinical supervision and well-meaning but uninformed administrative supervision. Our challenges range from serious issues to the mundane. We have to establish relationships with clients, other professionals, families, advocates… We practice confidentiality within our scope of practice and maintain test integrity. The dilemmas we face are: what is our code of ethics? Which code(s) applies? What are our risks (that is what can get me sued or fired) in the provision of services? We then must decide: how do I identify an ethical dilemma and what are the steps I need to take to solve one? How can I get help? Using case examples, this workshop will help with an application of the code of ethics, how to identify an ethical dilemma, and identify ways to resolve the problem. Participants will learn to:
- Identify and then compare and contrast applicable code(s) of ethics for vocational evaluators.
- Define risk and identify possible risk areas involved in day to day practice
- Apply a basic ethical problem identification and solving model.
