Restorative Ethics: An interactive workshop on Zoom

Restorative Ethics:

A Meditative Exploration of Ethical Vulnerabilities and Strengths

Working in a pandemic presents new ethical challenges; clinical, personal, technological, etc. Let’s uncover them and discover the necessary supports to sustain us. This pandemic reveals basic tenets of Buddhist psychology: knowing them can bring relief.

This workshop offers opportunities to reflect upon the ethical vulnerabilities inherent in clinical practice during these times– identify the ones particular to your practice and recognize the unique strengths and supports that sustain you. Learn an innovative, reflective meditative process that identifies the challenges and strengths particular to the context in which you now work.
