MORNING SESSION

Ethical Dilemmas: Reaching Resolution
By: Shannon E. Woller, PsyD, ABPP

PRESENTATION DESCRIPTION
Ethical dilemmas arise when two or more values come into conflict and are common occurrences in all facets of psychology.  However, despite being frequently encountered, ethical dilemmas can create significant amounts of distress, frustration, and circular thinking for those involved especially in situations that do not present immediately obvious solutions.  The purpose of this presentation is to provide psychologists with tools to help clarify the values in conflict when ethical dilemmas are identified, to write meaningful ethics questions that clearly summarize the dilemmas, and to generate options for ethical resolution of the dilemmas.  To achieve these aims, the presentation will first review a number of common values that come into conflict in psychology (e.g. beneficence and autonomy, confidentiality and duty to warn, and competence and nonmaleficence). Next, a structured formula for generating ethics questions will be presented.  Lastly, the structured ethics questions will be used to guide information seeking and generation of alternatives for resolution of the conflict.   Examples provided during the presentation will cover clinical, teaching, and research aspects of psychology to show how these principles are applicable across the field.  By the end of the presentation, attendees will have practical and reproducible tools that they can use in their professional endeavors to clarify and resolve challenging ethical dilemmas.
 
The steps to be covered in the current presentation are based on the National Center for Ethics in Healthcare’s CASES approach to resolving bioethical dilemmas and will be applied specifically to a psychology audience.  The National Center on Ethics in Healthcare has spent considerable resources outlining a process for ethics consultation which can be applied by individuals or groups when they are faced with ethical challenges.  The history of the CASES approach will be briefly summarized and resources for additional study will be presented for interested attendees to review following the presentation.
 
LEARNING OBJECTIVES
By completing the program, participants will be able to:
  1. Describe values that are frequently in conflict in ethical dilemmas.
  2. Apply a structured format for writing ethical dilemmas to help clarify the conflict of value,
  3. Create options for ethical resolutions of dilemmas based on the written ethics question.

Integrated Care: Models and Ethics of Collaboration
By: Joseph R. Biggs, PhD, HSPP

Presentation Description
Guidelines for the practice of telepsychology were published by the American Psychological Association’s Joint Task Force for the Development of Telepsychology Guidelines for Psychologist in 2013 (APA, 2013). Since that time, the research base to support its use has grown rapidly, particularly in the areas of implementation within particular populations, competencies needed for its practice, and ethical considerations for its implementation. The rapidly changing technological landscape and the expansion of telehealth as an acceptable service delivery tool, necessitates that Psychologist are informed about the current state of telepsychology. This webinar will therefore describe telepsychology and its role in psychological practice. It will also summarize current guidelines for telepsychology, and review the literature regarding its use in a variety of populations, including youth, parents, inmates, veterans, and members or rural communities. Ethical considerations of telepsychology will also be briefly discussed.

Learning Objectives

By completing the program, participants will able to:
  1. Define telepsychology and its role in psychological practice.
  2. Summarize guidelines for practicing telepsychology.
  3. Describe the evidence base of using telepsychology.

AFTERNOON SESSION

HIV: Psychologists Role in Diagnosis and Treatment
By: Braden R. Berkey, Psy.D.

PRESENTATION DESCRIPTION
In the thirty-five years since the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) was identified as the cause for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) the sociopolitical landscape around the disease has changed dramatically. While significant stigma is still attached to the diagnosis, individuals now have ready access to role models, social support programs, legal protections and a range of pharmacological therapy regimens.  With the advent of antiretroviral drugs an HIV or AIDS diagnosis shifted from an automatic death sentence to a life-threatening but potentially manageable chronic illness. Prevention messages are shifting dramatically since the FDA approved one of these drugs for use as a prophylactic in 2012. Still the threat of infection remains significant for many, and an HIV+ diagnosis remains a life-changing event.

As psychotherapists and behavioral health clinicians the role of psychologists in preventing new infections and treating those who are impacted by the disease remains critical.  We are often the professionals in the best position to help clients examine their sexual behavior and attitudes, assess their risk factors and engage in creative healthy changes. The presentation will address clinical work with both HIV+ and HIV- clients, looking at messaging on the syndrome as a continuum. The new reality is that transmission and infection are not simply tied to a positive or negative test result. Treatment, medication, identity behavioral components, and legal considerations intersect creating a complicated fluid status for clients and clinicians to navigate.  Participants will explore how to ethically address these sensitive topics around sexuality.
 
LEARNING OBJECTIVES
By completing the program, participants will able to:
1.  Explain developments in pharmacology for prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS, and demonstrate how to integrate these treatments into their practices.
2.  Apply Indiana laws and regulations that impact their practice.

3.  Design a framework for making informed ethical decisions in their clinical work with HIV+ and Aids impacted clients.
