Clinicians must deal with mental health emergencies at an alarming rate and it is not a question of if a crisis will occur, but when.
Emergencies in mental health happen every day in all types of settings. Sadly, crisis intervention remains a neglected component of education, training and supervision in clinical preparation programs.
Now more than ever it is critical for all helping professionals to correctly assess and “triage” various types of mental health emergencies and the attendant ethical and legal ramifications of crisis intervention. Knowing practical strategies for crisis management ensures the safety of both clients and therapists. This seminar will give you these strategies.
As a seasoned clinician with years in the mental health field, Harry Keener, PhD, LPC, LMFT, will provide you with invaluable tools for assessing, triaging and managing clients in crisis. This seminar will provide the skills you need to effectively assess and safely manage crises of lethality and will improve your knowledge regarding crises due to illicit and licit medication usage.
Dr. Keener will explore the legal and ethical issues related to crisis intervention in such clinical issues as mandated reporting, psychotic decompensation in clients, and the duty to warn.
You will come away with new confidence and a reputation with your colleagues that you can:
Legal and Ethical Obligations in Crises Situations

Psychotropic Medication and Mental Health Crises
