Ethical Dilemmas: Reaching Resolution
By: Shannon E. Woller, PsyD, ABPP

Ethical dilemmas arise when two or more values come into conflict and are common occurrences in all facets of psychology.  However, despite being frequently encountered, ethical dilemmas can create significant amounts of distress, frustration, and circular thinking for those involved especially in situations that do not present immediately obvious solutions.  The purpose of this presentation is to provide psychologists with tools to help clarify the values in conflict when ethical dilemmas are identified, to write meaningful ethics questions that clearly summarize the dilemmas, and to generate options for ethical resolution of the dilemmas.  To achieve these aims, the presentation will first review a number of common values that come into conflict in psychology (e.g. beneficence and autonomy, confidentiality and duty to warn, and competence and nonmaleficence). Next, a structured formula for generating ethics questions will be presented.  Lastly, the structured ethics questions will be used to guide information seeking and generation of alternatives for resolution of the conflict.   Examples provided during the presentation will cover clinical, teaching, and research aspects of psychology to show how these principles are applicable across the field.  By the end of the presentation, attendees will have practical and reproducible tools that they can use in their professional endeavors to clarify and resolve challenging ethical dilemmas.
The steps to be covered in the current presentation are based on the National Center for Ethics in Healthcare’s CASES approach to resolving bioethical dilemmas and will be applied specifically to a psychology audience.  The National Center on Ethics in Healthcare has spent considerable resources outlining a process for ethics consultation which can be applied by individuals or groups when they are faced with ethical challenges.  The history of the CASES approach will be briefly summarized and resources for additional study will be presented for interested attendees to review following the presentation.
By completing the program, participants will be able to:
1.      Identify values that are frequently in conflict in ethical dilemmas 2
2.      Learn a structured format for writing ethical dilemmas to help clarify the conflict of values
3.      Generate options for ethical resolutions of dilemmas based on the written ethics question.

Integrated Care: Models and Ethics of Collaboration
By: Joseph R. Biggs, PhD, HSPP

This presentation will review the recent mutual professional interest in, and growth of, integrated care, specifically in primary care settings.  The speaker, who has helped advance integrated care in west-central Indiana and east-central Illinois over the past two decades, will discuss models of collaborative care, examples of successful collaboration, barriers to collaboration, and potential problem areas and concerns.  Special attention will be given to possible ethical pitfalls and important ethical differences between psychology and various medical professions.  The speaker will add humor and personal examples to illustrate the exciting possibilities and challenges of integrated care and provide practical advice for those psychologists interested in exploring this growing area of practice.

By completing the program, participants will able to:
1.      Describe various models for collaborating with primary care providers, ranging from coordinated care to fully integrated care.
2.      Demonstrate an improved understanding of the professionals, settings, scope, and patient-based advantages of primary care medicine.
3.      Explain the salient roles of psychology in primary care settings and the potential challenges and ethical pitfalls associated with these roles.
4.      Describe how the provision of services in an integrated care model differs from the traditional behavioral healthcare delivery model.
