Everyday Ethics:

Refreshingly Relatable and Practical Law and Ethics Courses

Tired of Dry and Gloomy Law and Ethics Courses? 

Although I know ethics refreshers are essential to being a competent clinician, I have always dreaded going to these courses for few reasons:

1. Boring: They typically involve hours of painfully long lectures on the driest material in an otherwise fascinating field.

2. Anxiety-Provoking: At the end, I usually have a new list of nightmare scenarios that could ruin my career and future.

3. Not Practical Enough: It's one thing to have a list of what needs to be included in informed consent, but that is not a huge help when figuring out best to write your own informed consent contract or handle the subtle issue of building a strong therapeutic alliance while getting verbal informed consent.

Let's change that...
