Duty to Warn: Ethics and Social Consequence

October 14, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pm


The past two years have been filled with anger, conflict, and stark political splits in the Culture. That these trickle down into the consultation room is doubtless.

You are invited to a series of panels and discussions on the challenging roles and responsibilities of mental health professionals in the current political climate. Panels will look at the potential dilemma between a clinician’s Duty to Warn (As mandated by the Tarasoff ruling) and the Goldwater Rule which limits clinical discussion of public figures.

What this is not. This meeting is not a partisan rally and moderators will be charged to maintain a collegial atmosphere of sharing and mutual exploration.
