Fellows Collaborative Skills Training (FCST)

July 14, 2020 

12:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. (by Zoom)

This webinar will focus on the IACP Standards and Ethics and the interplay of those with our Collaborative Participation Agreement and our Collaborative Process Act. In group discussion format, we will use these resources to discuss the dilemmas and problems we encounter in our Collaborative cases as we try to do the right thing and figure out what that might be. Diane Diel, former IACP president, brings her experience as a member of the the IACP Ethical Standards Rewrite Task Force and the IACP Ethics and Standards Committee to the discussion. Register and be a part of the lively discussion. Register here:
