Program Description:

The course is designed to help you avoid problems in the ten main areas found to increase the risk to psychologists for licensing board and lawsuit complaints. This is a risk management workshop with a strong emphasis on ethical considerations. You will learn how to recognize the top ten problem areas, which include dealing with supervision issues, high conflict divorce issues, determining when a person is or is not actually a client, properly handling records issues, responding to subpoenas, avoiding multiple and problem relationships, dealing with duty to report and protect issues, and complying with HIPAA laws and rules. Vignettes will be used to discuss specific case situations.Attendees will receive a 50 page plus handout which lists all of the topics and related legal and other documents covered in the course. The handout is indexed for easy reference in the future.

  1. Identify 10 major practice areas presenting a high legal/licensing board risk to therapists,
  2. Recognize areas of the law which impact those high risk practice areas, and
