ETHICS Training (2 CEs)

This interactive section will be presented by Jason King, PhD

Dr. King's doctoral dissertation analyzed the ethical codes of Psychology, Counseling, Marriage and Family Therapy, and Social Work and the meeting meetings for these profession's state licensing boards. He earned a Post-Doctoral Management Certificate in Leadership and Organizational Strategy with a research focus on cultural intelligence, emotional intelligence, and diversity intelligence. Dr. King is a state-licensed and nationally board-certified clinical mental health counselor (CMHC) with over 20 years of clinical experience in private practice, outpatient, correctional, school, community-based, and online settings. For eight years, he served on the Utah Department of Occupational and Professional Licensing Board for Counselors, with six of those years serving as Chair.

In 2012, Dr. King received the AMHCA Mental Health Counselor of the Year Award. He co-owned and clinically directed an outpatient mental health and substance abuse treatment clinic that collected data for the American Psychiatric Association's Routine Clinical Practice field trials that informed the DSM-5 revision process. Because of this role, page 1000 of the DSM-5-TR lists him as a Collaborating Investigator. In 2019, Dr. King was appointed by Walden University's Vice President of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) to serve on its DEI Advisory Committee as one of two liaisons to Walden University's School of Counseling. He has a proficient working knowledge of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, the Office of Civil Rights, and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
