Ethics & Healthy Boundaries for Peer Advocates


This course is taught by two seasoned clinicians who have years of experience working with children, adolescents, and families in a variety of therapy settings.  We’ll discuss the newest version of the NAADAC code of ethics and talk about scenarios pertaining to child, adolescent, and family care in substance use, mental health, and co-occurring therapy that are REAL. 

More importantly–we’ll delve into the underlying factors that make us more vulnerable to ethical missteps–including how to better manage your own unique history and attributes.
