Avoiding Ethical and Legal Pitfalls in Mental Health Practice - Healthcare Seminar

PROGRAM DETAILS

When Clinical Practice, Ethics, and Laws Collide—Oh My!

In today's litigious society, being a great mental health professional is not enough to avoid ethics complaints, licensing board sanctions, and even legal liability. If you work in the field of behavioral health care, you must also understand professional codes of ethics, licensing board regulations, and laws in the governing jurisdiction. It is necessary to understand how these intertwine with clinical practice and what to do when those worlds collide—because they will! Integrated training in these inseparable areas has been fragmented at best and sometimes all together absent. What should you do when best clinical practices conflict with codes of ethics? What about when your code of ethics conflicts with laws? How can you stay informed of changes in codes of ethics, licensing board regulations, and new laws?

This one-day seminar provides an integrative approach to understanding and resolving conflicts between the clinical, ethical, and legal aspects of mental health practice. Whereas many mental health trainers will refer you to a lawyer to address legal issues and lawyers will refer you to clinicians to address clinical issues, Dr. Stinson—as a psychologist and lawyer—gives you a two-for-one training experience, uniquely addressing the clinical and legal aspects together. A comprehensive model will be presented to guide attendees through some of the most common ethical-legal breaches committed by mental health professionals with concrete suggestions to avoid the pitfalls that are inevitable in practice. Learn how to decrease your risk of ethics and board complaints as well as legal liability and increase your competence and comfort in resolving clinical-ethical-legal dilemmas. In addition to being informative, this course is designed to be engaging and interactive!

 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

• Avoid the traps inherent with everyday mental health records (maintaining, releasing, and withholding), consent issues, and confidentiality
• Identify mandatory and optional reporting requirements and responsibilities related to dangerous or high-risk clients
• Implement a decision-making model relevant to your practice and clients
• Discuss differences between ethics codes, regulatory rules, and laws; and how to access each
• Stay up-to-date on regulatory changes affecting your practice
• Determine when you can release confidential information and know how to respond in difficult situations (i.e. receive a subpoena)
• Outline mandatory reporting requirements
• Explain how to handle various medical record requests including those related to divorce, child custody, couples therapy, and/or requests which may not be in your client's best interest
• Illustrate key points in case law and state-specific statutes using clinical case examples
• Develop a plan of action for potentially violent or lethal clients
• Reduce your risk of complaints, sanctions, and legal liability
• Distinguish between a duty to report and a duty to protect
• Recognize when your duty attaches and how to ethically and legally discharge that duty
