We all want to do what’s ethically right--not to mention avoid getting sued!--but slogging through most ethics courses can be a tiresome bore. Not this time! This workshop features a game show that’s so entertaining, engaging, and high spirited that you’ll learn more, and have a better time, than in any ethics course you’ve ever taken. Participants will be divided into teams and equipped with electronic remotes for shooting answers to a computer-generated scoring system. The questions, which are presented in various formats, including Jeopardy-style categories, become more difficult as the points increase. We’ll explore some of the most perplexing legal and ethical quandaries--child abuse, confidentiality, dual relations, suicide, duty to warn--in such a stimulating way that you’ll be drawn into the enthusiastic discussion and have a great time. Note: this workshop fulfills many state board requirements for training in ethics and risk management.
