    Presented through support from Universal Technical Institute

    Tuesday, February 20, 2018

    Presenter: Dr. Carolyn Stone


    Brochure

    Workshop Description:
    The school environment poses competing interests between a student’s need for confidentiality and the legal rights of parents as established by the U.S. Supreme Court to be the guiding voice in their children lives in value-laden issues. Participants will develop an ethical decision making framework for analyzing and resolving ethical and legal issues through the application of ASCA ethical codes, case and statutory law, school board rules, and community standards. Through discussion of 40 case studies, participants will be given the opportunity to increase their understanding of the complexities of respecting a minor’s right to confidentiality, to develop a sensitivity to the need to consider their actions in context of each situation for each individual student, and to understand the rights of parents. Topics of discussion will include areas such as confidentiality and duty to warn, minors’ rights to privacy, counselors’ responsibilities toward suicidal children, civil and criminal liability, sexually active minors, birth control, abortion counseling, defamation, child abuse,case notes and educational records, malpractice in academic advising, sexual harassment, and personal conduct.
    Duration: 5 hours
