Mindfulness in Ethics: The Code at Work in Schools (PD102211)

Presenter(s): Lizbeth Dooley-Zawacki, MS, CCC-SLP, BCS-CL
Course Description

This was one of the most popular courses for SLPs in schools in 2023. See more popular courses for SLPs in schools.

The concept of mindfulness—which can improve professional and personal outlook—focuses on three major features: intention, attention, and attitude. This recorded session from ASHA’s 2021 Schools Connect online conference answers the question: What if school-based professionals apply the three features of mindfulness to understanding ASHA’s Code of Ethics and daily ethical practice? The presenter highlights the four major principles of the Code of Ethics as they relate to daily practice; discusses considerations outside the school (e.g., state licensure boards and employee guidelines) that are relevant to ethics analysis; and reviews school-based scenarios that apply the Code of Ethics and ethical decision-making.

Learning Outcomes

You will be able to:

  • Identify and define the four major principles of the ASHA Code of Ethics as applied to school-based practice
  • Identify ethical dilemmas in school-based practice and employ decision-making strategies
