ETH104 Ethics - The Ethics of Human Relating
This program focuses on the goals of ethics education and how it can be characterized as broadly encompassing two dimensions:  defensive and enhancing.  It strives to prevent misconduct and to developing a professional identity which includes a lifelong commitment to acting ethically.   It has been said that essential goodness exists outside of the rule book.  But most ethics trainings are delivered with an attitude of superego-oriented morality rather than with the sense of nurturing a discriminating, reflective conscience.
Course Objective
At the completion of this program, participants should be able to:
  • Explain when to use the 5-second rule in the therapeutic relationship.
  • Discuss what Dr. Summers’ calls an “ethic of inhibition” or “ethic of prohibition.”
  • Recognize standards that should be upheld even in short-term psychotherapy. 
  • Explain the term “split therapist feelings.”

  • Determine what it means for a therapist to have an ethical practice.
Intended Audience
Nurses, Psychologists, Social Workers, Counselors, Marriage and Family Therapists, Addiction Therapists 
Author Bio
Frank Summers, Ph.D., is Professor of Psychiatry and the Behavioral Sciences at the Feinberg School of Medicine of Northwestern University and holds faculty positions both at the Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis and the Chicago Center for Psychoanalysis.  He is President of the Division of Psychoanalysis, American Psychological Association. 

Dr. Summers has published extensively and lectured nationwide on object relations theories and their application to the process of psychoanalytic therapy.  The emphasis of his contributions has been on the translation of insight into concrete emotional and behavioral changes by bringing to fruition the latent potential of the patient.  His books and papers in professional journals elucidate his theory that psychoanalytic therapy is a process of self-creation in which the therapist plays a dual role of understanding current patterns and facilitating the creation of new ways of being and relating.
 
His previous book, Object Relations Theories and Psychopathology: A Comprehensive Text has been hailed as the best available survey of contemporary psychoanalytic theory and technique. 
In his current book, The Psychoanalytic Vision: The Experiencing Subject, Transcendence, and the Therapeutic Process, Dr. Summers argues that analytic therapy is a worldview that stands in clear opposition to the dominant cultural value system of objectification, quantification, and materialism. The Psychoanalytic Vision situates psychoanalysis as the voice of the rebel. 
Dr. Summers maintains a private practice in psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy in Chicago.
