Abstract and Keywords

Faculty members and clinical supervisors (trainers) play an important role in the professional development of their students and supervisees (trainees). In addition to offering education and clinical training to promote competent practice in their trainees, trainers have the opportunity to influence and guide the development of trainees into ethical professionals. This chapter addresses ways trainers should interact with trainees and how a focus on ethical practice is integrated into all training experiences through didactic instruction, informal discussions, and the modeling of ethical conduct in their relationships. Important issues addressed include creating a culture of ethics; promoting ethics acculturation; emphasizing and modeling a focus on self-care, balance, and wellness; the role of informed consent; how boundaries and multiple relationships may effectively be navigated; promoting integrity in research and publishing; establishing and maintaining clinical competence; and how to effectively work through ethical dilemmas and challenges. Recommendations for trainers are provided in each of these areas as they pertain to clinical practice, education, research, and supervision, and are addressed across the developmental continuum for trainees from graduate students to externs, to interns, to post-doctoral fellows.
