This is an archived course that is not offered at this time. The description will be updated if presented in the future.
This one-day combines Law and Ethics and Supervision. The six hour course satisfies both the mandated class in Law and Ethics ~ and six-hour update on supervision. It would be of interest to anyone who finds themselves in a mentoring role. Virtually all work in the helping professions includes guidance or coaching, so this material has wide applications.
The best healers continue their own inner work. We will look at our selves both as mentors and as earnest students. Careful tending of boundaries is crucial for ethical professional conduct and comfortable risk management. We will review key issues and reflect on our own personal systems for managing difficult situations.
Discussion will draw on the relationship between budding wizard Harry Potter and his teachers, Albus Dumbledore and Minerva McGonagall. The adventures are useful studies of challenges faced by trainees, clients, and ourselves. Like Harry, we all need to find courage, allies, and guides in the task of discovering our true selves. To rise to the destiny implied in our own life stories, we must learn our share of magic. The wizardry may be leadership or creativity but the contribution can be powerful in the lives we impact. The tales demonstrates the task of identifying the unique qualities of a protégé.
We are sobered by the mayhem caused by the sorcerer’s apprentice. As we caution our trainees about the moral and ethical considerations, we have to factor in inexperience and ignorance. Rebellious responses to regulatory frameworks many stem less from character flaws than lack of information about why rules have come into existence. Our understanding of the ethical and legal demands improves as we explain them to our protégés. This course is of use for those outside mental health professions. The principles can be broadly applied to mentoring in many situations. Certainly training in other lines of work includes many of the same concerns. By combining two important topics, we hope to find a synergy of insight into how legal and ethical frameworks serve us, and those we mentor.
