Navigating Ethics in an Ever-changing World (July Session)

The Great Lakes ATTC offers this training for behavioral health professionals in HHS Region 5: IL, IN, MI, MN, OH, and WI. This training is offered in response to a need identified by Region 5 stakeholders.

Note: Enrollment is limited–please see registration instructions below.



Ethics have always been the foundation of the addiction counseling field. This past year, addiction counselors have been faced with many new ethical dilemmas that have challenged the profession on many different levels to be able to provide strong ethical care. This training will review ethical principles and synthetic decision-making processes and then will focus in on addressing the ethics of telehealth, multicultural counseling, and counselor impairment. This training will be interactive in nature, encouraging participation in large and small groups through various activities.


• Gain knowledge and experience using a synthetic decision-making process to explore responses to ethical dilemmas
• Demonstrate how to address ethical dilemmas regarding telehealth, multicultural counseling, and counselor impairment through role play and discussion.
• Create self-care plans to encourage continued focus on counselor wellness
