CTO.E1 Contempory Ethics for Supported Employment Professionals

Staff of Supported Employment (SE) Programs experience ever-changing and unpredictable issues in the workforce that impact job-seekers and supported employees. SE professionals sometimes are challenged by competing viewpoints and influences, such as those from the worker, business, family or SE program manager. Without a solid foundation in the ethics of our profession, there can be a great temptation to rationalize ethical decisions in ways that lead to unintended, negative consequences.
This one-day training program will apply the APSE Ethical Guidelines and the Code of Professional Ethics for Rehabilitation Counselors to the difficult decision-making processes that SE professionals often face. Topics include cultivating business relationships while supporting the worker, offering accommodations with little-to-no experience with the disability, cutting corners to save time, navigating relationship boundaries, and confidentiality on social media. Strategies to manage common ethical dilemmas will be practiced using current case examples.
