Peer Consultation Groups: Supporting Ethical Alertness in Community (Ethics 103)

In Partnership with Psychedelic Support

Ethics 101 | Ethics 102 | Ethics 103

Kylea Taylor, MS, LMFT

Course Description

Learn the fundamental concepts and tools of the InnerEthics® model with this self-paced three-course series.

This video course provides instruction about the structure (the roles and functions) that supports vulnerability focused on compassion and learning instead of judgment so group members can become more conscious and skillful. You will observe five therapists use role play to demonstrate how these easy-to-learn roles and functions can support insight and consciousness development.

Therapists and practitioners use the structure of an InnerEthics® Peer Consultation Group to create a safe-enough container where they can serve one another by taking turns in the roles of a consultation. They learn how to help one another maintain ethical alertness leading to greater benefit for their clients.

The value of this structure is that members can feel safe enough with their like-minded, compassionate peers to pull back the curtain, bit by bit, from their Shadows and discover their unconscious motivations, biases, and patterns. With more consciousness and clarity, members can make better choices in the role of a “Responsible Party.”

Options: Certificate of Completion or CE Certificate (2 hours).
Price: $39 (Completion) / $54 (CE credit)

NOTE: Ethics 101 & 102 are recommended as prerequisite to this course.
While Ethics 103 can stand alone, if members of your Peer Consultation Group have taken Ethics 101 and Ethics 102, you all were introduced to InnerEthics® Ethical Awareness Tools for finding Right Relationship with Clients. You will be able to utilize these tools effectively in your Peer Consultation Group. Using the same terms and speaking the same “therapeutic ethical shorthand” saves time and allows members to be much more helpful to each other.

I personally enjoyed the lectures with Kylea tremendously. In addition to the valuable tools that were included, what I found very valuable is looking at ethics from the point of view of relationship rather than law and examining how my internal motivations & values align with action through the ethical lens. ~ Lama Elkhaldi

I have found how important this topic is for me and its importance for my work. Before this, I may not have emphasized ethics at first, assuming that I already have the wisdom and integrity necessary. … The relationship is part of the healing process. It is much more important than I could imagine. I will continue to explore this book and the tools with my classmates in hopes of avoiding some common pitfalls and exploring when I am in and out of the right relationship with myself and others in both my personal and professional life. ~ Jorge Arias
