Deep Dive into Prevention Ethics: Nature of Services (Part 1)


This is the fourth of six highly interactive sessions focused on taking a deep dive into principles of the Substance Misuse Prevention Code of Ethics. The focus of this session will be on the principle of Nature of Services, Sections A-D. After a short presentation on Section A through D of this principle, participants will work together in small groups to look at how this principle can be applied to real-life situations using the Ethical Decision-Making Process.
