Virtual - Law & Ethics: 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: 


1. Participants will be able to understand and list the four different elements holding therapists accountable for their work as professionals.

2. Participants will become aware of the “four bins” method of assessing patient dilemmas.

3. Participants will Identify and increase awareness of cultural humility and competent practice.

4. Participants will identify and list career sustaining behaviors for burnout.

5. Participants will learn and understand .the current the relationship between suicide, substance abuse, and social media when working with minors and young adults.

6. Participants learn and be able to use a sample informed consent when working online across state lines and with COVID.
