    Apart from conducting specialized, symptom-oriented interventions, mental health professionals work with patients’ problems in living—predominantly, problems in relationships. For the past two thousand years, these problems have been elucidated and illuminated by philosophers writing about ethics. For the past century, social scientists have entered this territory. More or less knowingly, we professionals work from both ethical and scientific perspectives—switching lenses, as it were.

    Fortunately, interdisciplinary work in ethics and science is becoming more common, and this interface is pertinent to the full range of therapies as well as to residential and inpatient treatment. Integrating ethics and science, this presentation includes topics such as therapeutic neutrality, fundamental values in ethical thought, personal influence, trust and trustworthiness, happiness and well-being, balancing love and respect, the role of community, spirituality, and hope. The workshop aims to broaden professionals’ perspectives and to heighten awareness of switching lenses, emphasizing the importance of grounding of our therapeutic work in explicit and personal ethical values.

    At the conclusion of this event, participants should be able to:

    • Recognize the strengths and limitations of science and the complementary role of ethics in relation to mental health treatment.
    • Learn how psychological research is informing philosophical work in ethics and vice versa.
    • Appreciate the importance of therapists’ personal influence on patients and the ethical aspects of this influence.
    • Consider the social-cultural role of mental health professionals and its ethical basis.
    • Differentiate contrasting approaches to philosophical ethics and consider the commonalities among them as they pertain to treatment.
    • Cognize the value of love and respect as an orienting framework for ethical and therapeutic relationships.

    Menninger's Family Education Day offers patients' families the opportunity to learn about psychiatric, behavioral and addictive disorders to elevate their understanding of treatment approaches. Additionally, participants will learn ways to strengthen understanding within the family. Equally important is the chance to meet other families going through similar experiences.

    The day's educational sessions are led by Menninger faculty and staff and cover topics that include attachment, mentalizing, psychotherapy, pharmacotherapy, recovery planning and more.
