Sustaining Ethical Practice: The Ultimate in Self-Aware Self-Care in the Helping Professions
Released just before COVID, The Passion Principle book provides Positive Psychology research on the role of passion in fulfilling one’s unique purpose, a passion discovery process that makes clear the role of passion over one’s lifetime and how to fully live from those passions. It includes stories of both famous and everyday people that overcame structural and personal obstacles to following one’s heart. Discovering, living and sustaining one’s passions are foundational but are often sacrificed in a highly individualistic, hyper-productivity oriented dominant culture. Individualism and hyper-productivity present ethical challenges for many practitioners in the helping professions. Self-knowledge and self-care are ethical keys to being a contribution to client’s lives and essential to being an effective agent for change. This presentation will engage attendees in examining what most brings them alive, what can sustain them in order to live their best life for themselves and to better serve others through sustained self-care that supports ethical practice in the role of helpers, healers, counselors and therapists.
A Presentation by Southwestern College faculty member Randy Crutcher, EdD, based on the book The Passion Principle: How to Live YOUR Most Passionate Life by Bruce Hutchison, Ph.D. and Randy Crutcher, Ed.D.

Ethical Considerations for Counseling Suicidal Children: Screening, Assessment, and Safety Planning
Presented by Katie Brammer, PhD, LPCC
Professional counselors are legally required to take steps in preventing client suicide, and yet evidence-based literature, training efforts, and supervision concerned with effectively screening, assessing, and intervening suicidal children remains negligible. Addressing suicide among children requires counseling professionals to cultivate developmentally appropriate awareness, knowledge, and skills to ethically work with youth and families. In this presentation, participants will learn common suicide warning signs and risk factors for children, developmentally suitable screening and assessment tools, and ethical interventions and safety planning skills to provide support to youth who are suicidal and their families.
