Developing Ethical Maturity through Supervision

Pam McLean & Peter Hawkins 
Format: Presentation


This session will focus on the role supervision can play in fostering ethical maturity of the supervisees while also continuing to cultivate one’s own as a supervisor. We will launch the session by examining the multiple layers of ethical maturity along with the nested systems where ethical issues may arise.  We’ll include some of the relevant research along with some common ethical challenges and create plenty of time for conversation.
