    This presentation on counseling ethical decision-making aims to equip participants with a holistic understanding of ethical challenges in the counseling profession. Participants will identify and articulate three common ethical dilemmas counselors face, showcasing their comprehension through written explanations. Moving to practical application, a second part of the presentation guides participants in applying the Forester-Miller and Davis (2016) decision-making model to a case study, honing their skills in systematically addressing ethical concerns. Lastly, participants will independently express ethical reflections in a written format, outlining considerations, challenges, and potential solutions to dilemmas presented in a provided case study. This comprehensive approach aims to deepen participants' ethical awareness and competence, bridging theoretical knowledge with practical skills for enhanced ethical decision-making in counseling practice.

    LO1: Participants will be able to identify and describe at least three common ethical dilemmas counselors face, demonstrating understanding through written or verbal explanations.

    LO2: Participants will be able to apply the Forester-Miller and Davis (2016) decision-making model to a case study by generating a step-by-step plan for addressing the ethical concerns presented.

    LO3: Participants will independently express their ethical reflections on a provided case study in a written format, outlining the considerations, challenges, and potential solutions to ethical dilemmas presented during the presentation.

Her specialties are Adoption Therapy & Brainspotting. She is a Certified Brainspotting Trainer & Consultant, Coordinator for Brainspotting Indy, and a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist.

    She is the author of The Bully Book: A Workbook for Kids Coping with Bullies (2016), The Loss Book: A Workbook for Kids Coping with Loss (2017), The Choice Book: A Workbook for Kids Making Choices (2019), a contributing author to Adoption Therapy: Perspectives from Clients and Clinicians on Processing and Healing Post-Adoption Issues (2014), and the organizing editor of It’s Not About You: Understanding Adoptee Search, Reunion, & Open Adoption (2017). She has also authored adoption education materials for parents and therapists.

    She was a founding member of MLJ Adoptions, Inc., where she served as the VP of Social Services for seven years. She was a Young Professionals Advisory Board member for The Villages, which is Indiana’s largest not-for-profit child and family services agency, serving over 1,400 children and their families each day.

    Brooke adopted an older child internationally as a single woman through a pilot program and works to maintain an open intercountry adoption. She is also a kinship care guardian. Brooke is passionate about promoting excellence in therapy, family preservation, and openness in adoption. She has presented at numerous conferences and workshops throughout North America on a variety of topics.

    Description and Learning Objectives:

    Those impacted by adoption – whether children or adults, parents or adoptees – face issues and variables uncommon to the general population. Treatment professionals can unitentionally increase the intensity of the situation if unfamiliar with the factors inherent to adoption and the situations that precipitate a need for a child to be adopted. Too often I have heard from adoptive parents we went to a therapist and they made it worse or adoptees saying I cannot find a therapist that gets it.

    Research and therapist self-report demonstrate how poorly we are prepared to address the issues related to adoption. We will discuss a vareity of ways that you can increase your knowledge base and ethically work with adoptees and adoptive families.

    Filled with research and historical information that often makes attendees gasp, this is a fun presentation for everyone. 

    Objectives:

    1. List at least three populations where adoptees are over-represented
    2. Report the risk of attempted suicide for adoptees
    3. Identify at least one key moment in history that impacts adoption
    4. List four goals for Adoption Therapy with kids
    5. List at least two ways to increase personal adoption competency
