This video project is comprised of four conversations with psychologists who are expert psychologist-managers (Dr. Dale Thompson, Dr. Beth Mitchell, Dr. Richard Killburg, and Dr. John Martello). Dr. Richard Ponton and Dr. Marlene Thorn facilitate the discussions and focus particularly on the ethical considerations of psychologists who are in leadership positions. This program is in collaboration with the Society of Psychologists in Management. 

Dr.  Mitchell is currently the Director of Cultural Transformation and the former Director of Mental Health at London Health Sciences Centre in London, Ontario, Canada, a large acute care hospital serving a broad region and diverse populations.   Based on her experience in leading multi-disciplinary programs in a health care setting, she discusses the application of ethical decision making processes to client care, budgeting, staffing, and program development in an environment of divergent viewpoints.
