This course is worth 1.0 continuing education contact hour for LCATs in New York state.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course will explore an ethical-decision making model specific to the practice of art therapy based on the existing ethical literature in the field of art therapy. It will apply this model to a variety of case studies to better grasp application of this model to ethical challenges.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Participants will be able to articulate an understanding of teleological and deontological ethical systems of thought.

    • Participants will explore ethical issues that include the following: moral and legal standards, public statements, confidentiality; client/patient welfare; professional relations; use of client artwork; ownership of client art; art therapy responsibility and competence.

    A reminder about self-study and continuing education:

    For LCATs in New York State, a self-study course can only equal 1/3 of the required contact hours for your license renewal. So, if your license renews in three years, you will require 36 continuing education contact hours, thus a maximum of 12 of those hours can be self-study. The rest of your contact hours must be live events. This includes online webinars, which CreativeArtsTherapiesOnline.com will be offering on a monthly basis, starting in February of 2017. All enrolled students will be updated on new live and self-study course launches. So keep an eye out for our newsletter!
