Ethics in Prevention: A Guide for Substance Misuse Prevention Practitioners
As substance misuse prevention professionals, we regularly face situations that require us to make ethical decisions. Often it is clear how to act ethically; sometimes it is not.
This moderated online course explores the six principles of the Prevention Code of Ethics, brought to life with realistic examples designed to enhance participant understanding. The course also introduces a decision-making process to help practitioners apply this code to a variety of ethical dilemmas, and an online discussion area to facilitate discussion with other course participants.
This course has been endorsed by the International Certification and Reciprocity Consortium (IC&RC) and meets the IC&RC’s prevention ethics requirement for prevention specialist credentialing.
This course is NOT meant to be completed in one day. Assignments are due to be posted by Monday, Wednesday, and Friday the first week and Wednesday and Friday the second week.
The course is open 24/7 and there is no specific time of day that you need to be on the course. You can post your answers at any time, we just ask that you try to keep to the schedule.
The next session is March 14-25, 2022. The January session is now full.
