Addiction Counselor Ethics (videoconference via Zoom)
Various situations and professional perspectives are considered when helping individuals with substance use disorders. As such, counselors are guided by ethical principles based on courage, empathy, humility, and respect.
This three-hour interactive training will review the Canon of Ethical Principles for Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselors (CASAC). Topics include definitions, principles, and questions emerging from challenging situations. Content will further discuss the concept of, “do no harm,” and implications for practice.
