About the Course

Psychologists have a duty to make ethical choices that promote the welfare of society and its members. Respect for individuals and their rights as well as practicing non-discrimination are central components to ethical psychological care. In this 1-day skills-focused and interactive workshop, participants will review the Canadian Code of the Ethics for Psychologists, professional standards for psychologists, and relevant provincial and federal legislations. Participants will learn and practice, step-by-step, how to apply the 10-step ethical decision-making process to current issues related to justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion in psychology. Participants will also learn and practice strategies to identify and evaluate personal biases related to current topics in professional ethics. This workshop is appropriate for registered psychologists and psychologists in training.
