Ethics and Boundaries: Ethical Decision Making in Rural Mental Health Settings (February 15, 2018)
Census data from Wisconsin and Minnesota (Milewski, 2009) suggest many mental health practitioners have fewer local resources leading to greater opportunities for ethical dilemmas. Clinicians practicing in small communities or those isolated by geography face unique ethical challenges due to the increased likelihood of dual relationships, challenges to confidentiality, and limited resources for referral, supervision, or consultation. The ethical challenges for rural therapists are compounded when they also belong to a minority group or a particular faith community. This workshop will focus on increasing providers’ ability to provide ethical clinical practice through reconciling competing ethical principles, exploring creative ways of resolving ethical dilemmas, and movement toward best practices for mental health treatment in small communities. Participants will engage in an exploration of the tensions between ethical principles and rural practice, decision-making theory, and research findings; there will be a special emphasis on participants’ real-world experiences of rural practice through use of pre-submitted cases for discussion.
