When involved in a crisis, time is of the essence, and oftentimes clinicians are called to quickly triage a situation. The margin for error can be small or extensive depending on the situation. In addition, environmental elements can impact ethical decision-making processes and the approach applied can vary widely. This workshop will explore appropriate ethical decision-making processes in a crisis situation/intervention. An emphasis will be placed on best practice techniques for ethical decision-making, allowing participants to engage in a variety of different intervention techniques. This is an interactive workshop where cases vignettes will be presented and participants will work in group setting to further maximize their understanding of the concepts presented.

  2. Analyze the connection between appropriately applied crisis intervention techniques and successful outcome measures.
