David I. Joseph, M. D.
“Subtle Ethical Issues in Private Practice”
November 11, 2018
The Sheppard Pratt Conference Center
6501 N. Charles St, Baltimore, MD, 21204
Sign-in, Registration, and Networking: 9:30 AM
This presentation will explore the subtle but important ethical issues that are an integral part of the private practice of psychiatry and psychotherapy. Unlike many ethical issues that confront the clinician such as the duty to warn (Tarasoff) or the duty to report (child abuse), it is easy to overlook the many ways in which ethical matters impact the mundane aspects of practice. Identifying and clarifying these ethical issues will integrate ethical thinking into the daily work of the clinician. Attendees will be encouraged to bring their own personal ethical dilemmas for discussion.
About the Speaker:
David I. Joseph, M. D. is a supervising and training analyst at the Washington Baltimore Center for Psychoanalysis. He was for many years Director of Residency Training at St Elizabeth’s Hospital. He writes on and presents various aspects of clinical ethics and has a special interest in confidentiality. An English major in college, he has found that teaching therapists the skills of reading fiction is very useful in improving one’s ability to listen to patients.
At the end of this program, participants will be able to identify the ethical issues involved in:
The decision to work with or not to work with a new patient.
The setting of the fee.
The development of a policy for missed sessions.
Who should attend? Mental health professionals (psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers, licensed professional counselors, pastoral counselors) and persons with an interest in psychodynamic and psychoanalytic thinking and application.
