Listening to Patients: What We Can Learn from Memoir about Ethics and Therapy - Elliot L. Jurist, PhD, PhD (Live)

August 25, 2023

Virtual Grand Rounds Series 

Memoirs provide a window into the actual experience of patients in psychotherapy, and they are also a useful way to look closely at the work of therapists, in particular, their ethical conduct. In this talk, Dr. Jurist distinguishes among three different kinds of ethical examples: 1) ethical violations, where the therapist does something that is inconsistent with professional standards; 2) ethical conundrums, where the therapist is conflicted about what to do (and there might be conflict between the therapist and the patient); and 3) ethical collisions, where the values of the therapist and the patient clash and, too often, threaten to or stop the treatment. Examples are provided for each of these situations; however, special attention is paid to the third kind of example because it forces us to grapple with issues concerning diversity and culture and because it has less to do with avoiding mistakes as it does with aspiring to a high level of integrity as a mental health professional. A high level of integrity means that one strives to be aware of one’s own values, one is curious and respectful about patients’ values, and one is open to engaging in the process of mentalizing about one’s values and inviting patients to do so as well.
