We want to bring awareness to the ICF Ethics functions and resources to all stakeholders. We will specifically speak to our complaint processes (including those areas where coaches are most often found in breach of the Code), our Code of Ethics and the review happening this year, ethics resources, and give participants an opportunity to participate in conversations around a case study to exercise those ethical muscles.

Continuing Coach Education Units (CCEUs) available for this program: .25 Core Competencies and 1.25 Resource Development Credits.
