Ethics with Ike Powell (2 hours)

The “Re-visiting Ethics” CEU focuses on the emergence of professional ethics and why a code of professional ethics is important. This training explores 1) the potential negative impact of the imbalance of power in professional relationships, 2) the role of professional ethics in protecting the rights of the people being served by defining guidelines for behavior of those providing the services, and 3) how the Georgia Peer Specialist Code of Ethics protects the rights of people receiving peer support services.

IMPORTANT FOR ALL CERTIFIED PEER SPECIALISTS

Georgia’s Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities, the agency that provides funding for the Certified Peer Specialist Project, is creating a database of all Certified Peer Specialists across the state, and they have asked us to provide them with updated information for all Certified Peer Specialists, including date of birth. Depending on when you completed your training and certification, the Georgia Mental Health Consumer Network may not have your date of birth and current contact information (including mailing address and working phone number) on file.

 

It is very important that we be able to provide DBHDD this information as soon as possible. Please click here to update your CPS information, including your date of birth, at your earliest convenience.
