It is very common for anyone working in the helping profession to encounter ethical dilemmas. Ethics are at the heart of competent and effective practice for anyone in the helping field, particularly when managing boundaries and relationships. This workshop is designed to give individuals and organizations an opportunity to review common principles and standards for ethical practice that are relevant for their settings. Participants will practice using an ethical decision-making process to work through common areas of ethical concerns and leave with a stronger awareness of their own ethical base.

In-person events follow local guidelines for gathering. This workshop will transition to a virtual event should COVID restrictions limit in-person gatherings. Please call CTRI before booking flight/hotel room.

This workshop is being run in partnership with the Northern Institute of Social Justice and Yukon University.
