Ethics of Excellence (DHR401)

This training will review recent developments in professional ethics which call therapists' attention to the effectiveness of their work, not just whether it is done competently. Most therapists believe they are quite effective, but the data reveals there is wide variation in therapist effectiveness and most are unaware of their own. In reviewing some of the literature on expert performance in other domains, from music to chess to athletics to surgery to engineering and airline piloting, this workshop will offer feasible, clinically useful strategies for establishing one's baseline performance, enhancing one's capacity to engage in deliberate practice for improvement, and eliciting and incorporating feedback on one's work. Regardless of one's theoretical orientation or practice setting, this practical workshop will provide useful supports for professional flourishing in pushing past mere proficiency and demonstrating real excellence.
