Using Psychological Type Ethically: A Discussion of Whys and Hows with Karen Keefer

June 24, 2023 @ 11:00 am 12:30 pm Australia/Sydney

APTi recently posted a new set of ethical standards for the use of psychological type (apti.memberclicks.net/apti-standards).  Lead author Karen Keefer will share the goals and process of this project, and discuss the “hows and whys” of the new standards with us.  Bring your questions and concerns about the ethical use of type in your particular location and setting.  Karen is especially interested in current challenges you are facing, and in feedback on the applicability of these U.S.-based standards both internationally and cross-culturally.
