Many continuing education ethics programs are generic in nature. Often, such programs stress risk management strategies to the detriment of the attendees, especially when the program is presented by an attorney.
This program is different. Rather than avoiding clinical issues, this program explores the manner by which clinical and ethical issues affect the everyday practice of the mental health professional in Pennsylvania. This unique blend of clinical and ethical concerns allows for a more meaningful understanding and interpretation of the rules that govern mental health practice.
These goals are reached through the experience and the interactive style of the presenter, Allan M. Tepper, J.D., Psy.D. Different from other individuals who possess joint degrees in psychology and law, Dr. Tepper actually maintains an active psychology practice and an active law practice. He functions as a clinician, and he represents mental health professionals who experience legal difficulties. In this regard, Dr. Tepper brings an extremely unique perspective to the practical understanding of ethics.
These goals also are reached through an updated manual utilized in the seminar. The manual materials are not generic in nature. All of the written materials are state-specific to Pennsylvania.
This seminar fulfills the one hour of continuing education mandated by Act 74 of 2016 for all Pennsylvania licensed psychologists, licensed social workers, licensed professional counselors, and licensed marriage and family therapists.
When interacting with an attorney, it sometimes is difficult to hear the words, “Trust me.” For this live webcast, however, we do say, “Trust us!!” We guarantee you won’t walk away disappointed.
