Workshop Description: The ethic of relational responsibility is an orientation to therapeutic process that requires us to attend to local, historical, and cultural considerations rather than universal principles. The focus is on conversational processes, not on people, situations, or problems in isolation. We will examine the nuances of working in the unique contexts in which today’s practitioners find themselves.  We will explore how therapists can ground themselves in a relational ethic that gives their work meaning, helps sustain them in their practice, and allows them to engage in justice as an ethical endeavor.  We will consider the question, “How do we know when clinical practice is responsible and ethical?” from multiple perspectives, and offer resources for ethical action in practice.  Click here for Q&A about relational responsibility
