    Presenters Include:

    Dr. Hans Carlson - "An Overview of the Management of Persistent Musculoskeletal Pain"

    Mary Barros-Bailey - "Multiculturalism and Vocational Rehabilitation"

    Phillip Boswell - "Finding Your Professional Voice: Why Ethics Matter"

    Ethics go to the heart of who we are, how we act and how we want others to view us. Ethics provide guidelines for what is acceptable and what is not acceptable however even the best code cannot address every situation.

    Codes of professional ethics identify those moral principles and standards of behavior that professions, institutions, and organizations believe will assist them in distinguishing between right and wrong, and ultimately in making good moral judgments. This presentation explores how one's code of ethics is able to assist professionals practicing in the vocational arena so that they may serve the public good.
