Many continuing education ethics programs are generic in nature. Many continuing education ethics programs stress risk management strategies to the detriment of the attendees, especially if an attorney presenter is involved.
This program is different. Rather than avoiding clinical issues, this live webcast explores the manner by which clinical and ethical issues affect the everyday practice of the mental health professional in Virginia. 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 most 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 the manual utilized in the seminar. The manual materials are not generic in nature. All of the written materials are state specific to Virginia.
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.
