Discussion 2: Ethical Dilemmas

To prepare for this Discussion:

  • Consider      at least one ethical dilemma encountered by mental health professionals      who practice in forensic treatment settings. An ethical dilemma occurs      when two or more ethical principles or standards conflict, and there is no      right and wrong choice.
  • Think      about how ethical dilemmas might complicate treatment in specific forensic      settings.
  • Reflect on      how you would resolve each dilemma using specific ethical principles and      guidelines from your code of ethics in your profession.

With these thoughts in mind:

By Day 4
