Washington, D.C. 20002, (The OSSE Office)

(Accessible by Metro Red line, Union Station, 1st Street Exit)


This One Day Seminar includes two excellent classes (a total of 6 category I CEUs). Refreshments served through out the day.


Class I – 10:15am -1:15pm
Friends, Pokes, and Tweets: Ethical Considerations Online and in Person.
(3 Category I Ethics CEUs)


“Do you have children?”, “Are you married?”, “Will you be my friend on Facebook?”  Boundary issues with clients and ethical considerations have only become more complicated in recent years.  With the extent of personal information that is available on the internet, clinicians need to be cautious about what information is available to their clients.

Participants will evaluate appropriate uses of self disclosure by viewing examples of therapy sessions from popular movies and television.  Participants will become knowledgeable of the 10 things clinicians need to know about privacy on the internet and how to protect themselves.  This information will assist clinicians in making ethical decisions related to self disclosure. (Trainer,  Annie Sutton, LCSW-C)

Class II – 2pm -5pm

The Penn State Factor: The Ethical Imperative of Mandated Reporting and the Devastating Effect of Cover-Up (3 Category I Ethics CEUs)

Few things are as heartbreaking and upsetting as learning of an occurrence of child abuse. It is even more disconcerting to learn of systematic abuse and the efforts by institutions to cover them up. It is often said that “the cover up is worse than the crime”. Yet time and again institutions and professionals choose to turn a blind eye to abuse or sweep concerns under the rug.

This class will take a look at the recently uncovered abuse allegations and cover-up at Penn State University. Participants will look at reporting patterns and gain an understanding of what prevents people from reporting, and learn how to create an environment that encourages abuse reporting. Participants will learn the laws related to child abuse reporting and what constitutes child abuse in the State of Maryland and the District of Columbia. They will gain a deeper understanding of the reasons that people and institutions do not report events and an understanding of that impact on the institutions and children. (Trainer, Jeffrey Davidson, LCSW-C, LICSW, Director CE You!)
