Virtual – Law & Ethics in Clinical Work with Children, Teens and Families
The Ethics Codes, case law, and regulations for professional mental health and addiction services evolve routinely, but with the busy schedules most providers have, it can be difficult to keep up with these changes. The purpose of this course is to meet and exceed the requirements of regulatory organizations, assist mental health professionals in maintaining competence in this vital area, and better manage potential risks in practice. This review of key ethical and legal concepts will focus on improving ethical problem solving, conjoint treatments and work with minors, boundaries and privacy. The course meets and exceeds the Board of Psychology’s mandated ethics and law update requirement, and the Board of Behavioral Sciences 6 hour update requirement for LCSWs, MFTs and LPCCs, and will be taught at an intermediate level.
At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
