Special event: Discussion of PIT, Ethics and professional practice

Frank Margison

PIT-UK has a Policy on Ethics and Professional Practice even though we do not regulate practice directly. The discussion is chaired by Simon Heyland and introduced by Frank Margison.

We will summarise the existing policy (which is easily available on the website- it is in the footer and just click on “Code of Ethics and Professional Practice” and it will download automatically and can be saved from there if needed).

The discussion will cover a wide range of ethical issues for discussion, such as confidentiality when writing up cases, maintaining boundaries, conflicts between different professional codes and more.

We will use this as part of the consultation process to start revising our policy.

12 April

Professor Else Guthrie

“Psychological Biography: Contrasting examples of Lincoln and Oppenheimer”

This talk will focus on the different styles of psychological biography using biographies of Oppenheimer and Lincoln as examples. One style seeks to understand and construct a psychological narrative of the person under study whilst the other presents facts with little attempt to think about them in a psychological way. 
Both Oppenheimer and Lincoln were extraordinary people with contrasting upbringings and psychological profiles.

Date: Friday 12th April 2024

Time:  1.45-3.00pm

Format: Zoom seminar
