Dr Andrew Crosbie works to promote greater ethical leadership in our society.  He runs his own ethics training and consulting practice (, through which he advises organisations how to promote ethical behaviour.  Much of his work is with high schools, where he runs workshops and programs for students and professional development for teachers.

Andrew gained a PhD from UNSW on the subject of role models and responsibility, and subsequently worked for several years as a manager at various Australian not-for-profit organisations.  He also coordinates a network of volunteer advocates for Cancer Council NSW and serves on the Human Research Ethics Committee at Westmead Children's Hospital, as a volunteer in both roles.

The purpose of this workshop is to equip psychotherapists and counsellors to deal with challenging ethical situations within the professional framework.  Through a mixture of games, paired activities and small group discussions, this workshop will help you to identify ethical challenges in counselling, reflect on your personal tendencies, understand how you’d like to respond to ethical challenges, and practise ethical ways of responding.

At the end of this session, you should:

  • Understand how ethics relates to the roles of counsellor and psychotherapist
  • Know more about your personal ethical qualities and responses
  • Be better equipped to deal with challenging ethical situations

This workshop is based on the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia ethical framework.

By attending this event you will receive a certificate crediting you with 3 PD hours.

Registrations are crucial as places are limited. Please register via the online form. Registrations will be via Eventrbrite and you will receive an email confirming your registration.
