Psychologists and counselors are often faced with situations that require sound ethical decision-making ability. Determining the appropriate course to take when faced with a difficult ethical dilemma can be a challenge. To assist in meeting these challenges, the Oklahoma Psychological Association is presenting a one-day seminar on Ethical Decision-Making. The intent of this seminar is to offer empirically-base information, resources, and information to help the clinician to develop a deeper understanding of ethical decision-making, as well as utilize a model that addresses the many ethical questions in their work.


The morning session will consist of a didactic presentation by Dr. Ryan P. Brown, focusing on the most recent research and models of ethical decision making.

The afternoon session will consist of a panel discussion.  The panel will consist of several different professionals who practice in a range of settings in which they face unique ethical challenges.  Each panelist will describe the setting in which they work, as well as the types of ethical challenges they experience. The floor will then be opened for audience participation.


Ryan P. Brown is a Professor of Psychology at The University of Oklahoma, where he has taught social psychology at the graduate and undergraduate levels for the last 15 years. Prior to OU, he taught at Amherst College after obtaining his Ph.D. from The University of Texas at Austin. His research has spanned a host a topics, including stereotype threat, forgiveness, narcissism, and ethical decision-making. Along with an interdisciplinary team of researchers, he helped develop a novel set of measures of ethical thinking as well as an ethics training program now used by OU and other universities for incoming graduate students in the sciences. His most recent research has focused on the dynamics of honor cultures and honor ideology, such as the role that honor plays in interpersonal violence, risk-taking, suicide, and the stigmatization of mental health care.
