Facilitated by Lynn Stanley, LICSW
All clinicians advocate for their clients at various levels. Our work makes us key stakeholders and content experts on how our clients are impacted by systems and policies. This workshop will explore how clinicians can advocate for policies that benefit our clients and our ability to provide services. This workshop will explore how our clients’ issues are often compounded by systemic and social injustice, the ethical obligation of clinicians to actively work to change the policies that hurt our clients, and ethical ways to make these changes a reality.
