Clinical Case Conference 3 (open)
Ethical Aspects of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Practice: Have We Changed How and What We Think?

Ethical issues in child and adolescent psychiatry (CAP) practice occur routinely and having a strategy to comprehend and manage these is vital. Presentations identify ways in which ethics in CAP practice have changed over the last decade, as illustrated by examples in evidence-based practice, boundaries in treatment, technology, and conflict of interest. Ethical and clinical dilemmas in these areas are identified and information about understanding and managing them is given. Case material and vignettes are used to highlight and discuss ethical dilemmas and the importance of preserving the core, essential aspects of ethical principles while maintaining flexibility to incorporate new knowledge and perspectives. The influence and impact of cultural and generational issues on ethical stances and practices is also discussed.
