Join Mary M. Brabeck, PhD, Professor Emerita of Applied Psychology, Dean Emerita of the Steinhardt School of Culture, New York University, for a free professional workshop.
This webinar provides a comprehensive exploration of issues specific to the practice of trauma psychology, focusing on adult survivors of interpersonal violence. Despite the pervasive prevalence of trauma in clinical contexts, many practitioners find themselves in the challenging position of providing treatment training and support tailored to this population. The presentation delves into best practices for effectively navigating the ethical and professional dilemmas commonly encountered during the assessment and treatment of trauma survivors.
Within this context, this program will address the application of essential ethical principles from the APA ethics code, including informed consent, confidentiality, competence, dual role relationships, and therapist self-care. Additionally, the session will examine the ethical and relational complexities that can arise when therapists are become involved in legal proceedings, such as responding to subpoenas, court correspondence, or providing testimony.
Participants will acquire practical strategies for recognizing and addressing the ethical and interpersonal challenges, ultimately enhancing the quality of care and safety in trauma treatment.
This course is approved for 3.0 Category I Ethics Credits.

- Apply their competencies in providing care to adult survivors of interpersonal violence who have experienced trauma.
- Discuss the skills and knowledge necessary to navigate the ethical and professional dilemmas commonly encountered in the treatment of trauma.
