We are ethically and professionally responsible for developing and maintaining a certain level of competence in our clinical work.  One aspect of this development involves “acculturation”  —  acceptance of our professional culture and its ethical standards.  This workshop is about developing a professional identity and making professional connections that help us learn and provide ongoing support. Co-leaders are Michael Stutts, former vice-chair of the Virginia Board of Psychology and Mary Alice Fisher, Director of the Center for Ethical Practice.
