Online Course » ETH102 Ethics - and Countertransference

Course Description:
This program takes a close look at countertransference, often at the root of ethical transgressions.  For clarification, briefly, countertransference is defined as redirection of a psychotherapist's feelings toward a client—or, more generally, as a therapist's emotional entanglement with a client.
Course Objective:
At the completion of this program, participants should be able to:
  • Recognize when a countertransference response becomes a betrayal of the therapeutic bond and promise
  • Be able to explain how ethical responses from the therapist could be at the bases of ethical transgressions. 
  • Determine ethical issues that underlie ethical violations and vulnerabilities.  
  • Recognize distinctions between therapy and friendship that might be overlooked, self-justified or rationalized. 

Intended Audience:
Nurses, Psychologists, Social Workers, Counselors, Marriage and Family Therapists, Addiction Therapists
