 Using Positive Ethics to Address Contemporary Issues in Neuropsychology

The field of neuropsychology is ever evolving, and we owe it to our patients and clients to aspire to the highest standards of service delivery. One important approach to help reach this goal is to be proactive in our ethical practice. Positive ethics push us to strive toward ethical ideals, rather than simply reacting when we are faced with such dilemmas. This webinar will review several contemporary ethical issues in our field, with attention to diversity, equity, and inclusivity. The application of positive ethics will be examined, along with review of a decision-making model to utilize when we encounter inevitable ethical quandaries. The applicability of this proactive approach will be exemplified through case examples.

Learning Objectives:

  • 1.      Describe several contemporary ethical issues relevant to neuropsychology.
  • 2.       Explain positive ethics and review a decision-making model that can assist in ethical practice and problem solving.
  • 3.      Discuss the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusivity in ethical neuropsychology practice.
  • 4.      Utilize real-world examples to illustrate how applying positive ethics can enhance the delivery of neuropsychological services
