Ethics Workshop

Last chance to get your annual ethics points!

Dear Colleagues,

The IPCP invites you attend a repeat with some differences of its annual Ethics Workshop:


This year we will be addressing the Children’s Act, 38 of 2005 as well as talking about a variety of ethical challenges that confront us in our everyday work as psychologists, social service, and other healthcare providers.

Sheri Davime and Luke Lamprecht, both experts in the field of ethics will look at issues ranging from child protection to matters of consent and will talk about dilemmas such as:

  • Contamination of the therapy: How to deal with intrusive parents
  • What to do when parents or caregivers disagree on matters of consent
  • Ethical responsibilities when risk behaviours are disclosed
  • The social media: How it alters the frame of therapy
  • Reporting to welfare as well as other organisations and institutions such as the school: What are the issues and how does this impact on practitioner responsibility?

In addition Sheri will address the link between woman and child abuse and issues arising in therapy with an adult patient while Luke will speak about the “enemy within”.

Dealing with another troubling ethical issue? The workshop also provides an opportunity for YOU to submit your own ethical dilemma for selection and discussion by Luke and Sheri. Please send no later than 20 October to Felicity van Vuuren on or Marnie Vujovic on

Get up to date with the guidelines and policies relevant to your work… Come and join us for what promises to be an informative morning of lively debate
