Navigating Ethics and Risk Management Challenges at Clinical, Organizational, and Systems Levels
In this year’s Washington School ethics workshop, after a brief introductory talk, we will work through four scenarios, taken from the recent experiences of local clinicians who have aced coronavirus-related ethics and risk management dilemmas. You will have the chance to talk through the scenarios in small groups that will meet throughout the day, and then come together as a large group to share what you have learned and what questions emerge and remain for you. Our goal is that this will be a conversation in which everyone is welcome, included, and valued. We will draw on the wellspring of shared values that brings us to our work; and we will come up with practical, effective solutions to problems we are facing as we endeavor to move our work forward.

Severely fragile patients present great difficulties when their ability to tolerate feelings has been compromised by a childhood history of severe trauma.
We will study several sessions in sequence in great detail to illustrate how to assess anxiety, and how to work with splitting, projection, and dissociation. The videos will show how to gradually build affect tolerance in patients who easily become too anxious in session.
The patient had been in therapy for thirty years and had become worse as a result. She had been previously diagnosed with dissociative identity disorder, schizoaffective disorder, and schizophrenia.
Treatment with a series of anti-psychotic medications gave no benefit.
