Dave GussakAs art therapists, we often find ourselves navigating the often intersecting, sometime disparate, paths of ethics, morality and legality. This webinar will focus on recognising these intersections and the often-confusing divergence therein, and will offer various strategies art therapists may use to address and mitigate such challenges. Dr Gussak (Florida State University), who has taught ethics for various graduate programs for more than 25 years and has helped develop the field's ethics documents, will rely on his clinical, research and supervisory experiences to facilitate discussions from which attendees will learn to: differentiate between ethical, moral and legal expectations; explain various circumstances in which these three philosophical circumstances may support one another, intersect or challenge each other within an art therapy context; and recognise various decision-making strategies to mitigate any disparities to provide the best attention for our clients. This webinar is open to art therapists at all levels within our professional and developmental journey and we also welcome members of the public to attend..
