This live, virtual 3-hour training aims to build knowledge and understanding for clinicians working with traumatized youth through providing education on research and best practices, using case examples that illustrate common ethical considerations/dilemmas that occur when working with traumatized youth.
This training will focus on two common ethical considerations with this population: 1) balancing our mandate to "do no harm" while simultaneously providing a treatment that elicits distress through exposure work, and 2) ethical considerations in pre-trial therapy for youth involved with criminal proceedings.
This is an intermediate to advanced training for therapists who have a basic level of understanding of one or more evidence-based treatments for traumatized youth (such as Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy).
