Join us for a complimentary continuing education event hosted by Accanto Health. Presented by Elisha Contner Wilkins, MS, LMFT, CEDS-S.
During this presentation, individuals will review common ethical principles used in mental health and eating disorder treatment. The primary goal will be to use this forum to start a dialogue among eating disorder treatment providers to develop a forum to support each other with difficult decisions in eating disorder treatment. This presentation will also discuss involuntary hospitalizations as well as the risks of remaining at a lower level of care when a higher level of care is clinically and medically indicated. At the culmination of the workshop, participants will walk through a series of ethical dilemmas and discuss how to problem-solve.
11:00 AM to 2:15 PM ET
By the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
• Identify the 8 common ethical principles that are utilized in problem-solving ethical dilemmas
• Understand how to improve patient resistance to treatment and/or recommendations and will leave with have new strategies to implement in the treatment setting
• Have a framework with which to clinically and psychologically understand why patients at times desire to remain at a lower level of care
