About the event:
Lesley Murdin: Ethics in The modern World: What difficulties beset therapists over such matters as money and communication? Lesley will be speaking about the experiences of therapists who have received complaints in order to consider how the demands of the twenty first century require us to modify or reaffirm an ethical stance. Discussant: Rhoda Dorndorf.
1 Lawrence Suss: ‘The challenges for training committees of working ethically’ Lawrence speaks to the ethical requirements of training organisations so that the Training Committee is located within an ethical system. He wonders what makes for an ethical training from the perspective of the Training Committee, selection of candidates, course advertising, on-course requirements, the cost of training, and finally course content.
2 Sarah Fahy: “The Ethical Attitude: a Bridge Between Psychoanalysis and Analytical Psychology”. Discussion of Hester McFarland Solomon’s paper, following an introduction by Sarah Fahy. In this paper, the ethical attitude is shown to be an essential part of the analytic relationship and is not just an addendum to the practitioner’s work, functioning as an analytic superego. A Code of Ethics is not merely a checklist that may be forgotten as long as it is not transgressed. Analytic practice and the ethical attitude are intimately bound together. In that sense it is ubiquitous across analytic schools. The ethical attitude can function as a bridging concept as we think about our practice as stretching deeply into the foundations of the developing psyche. It includes commonly held, collective values. How to deal with ethical issues in the consulting room, in our professional organisations, and between colleagues is a common concern for psychoanalysts and analytical psychologists alike.’
Niki Reeves: The New UKCP Code of Ethics. In relation to current considerations regarding Ethics within the CPJA and in response to the contemporary external environment Niki discusses the construction and process of the proposed new UKCP Ethics Code. The shape of the code and an explanation of its three parts will be made, with exploration of how the Code can be used by registrants. Finally there will be a presentation of the 6 “Conduct Guidance” documents, which accompany the Code. Discussant: Charles Brown.
