NRCA Meeting
Chrisann Schiro-Geist, Ph.D., ABVE/D, IPEC & Dr. Michelle Marme

You do not want to miss this dynamic workshop! Group facilitators will challenge participants to look at many key facets of the rehabilitation counseling field within an ethical context!

Ethical Issues and ethical practice are at the heart of how Rehabilitation Counselors conduct their practice. Ethical practice is the basis for being a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC)and NRCA has adopted the CRC Code of Ethics, as the one that it embraces. In addition to an ethical code, counselors need to understand and incorporate into practice a deep understanding of underlying Ethical Principles.

This 4 hour workshop will review a model for addressing ethical issues in practice, but will also use that model to deal with how these ethical issues have effected the direction of and will apply to the management of professional rehabilitation organizations in the future. This is a workshop for those who care about Ethics, professionalism and professional organizations. Modeling will be focused on the history of these issues within NRCA itself, but can and will apply to and be contrasted with other organizations, such as ABVE. How organizations co-exist and work together will be a focus of the final group discussion.
Available CEUs: 4 ABVE & CRCC (Pending)
