Description

Finally…an ADVANCED training in ethical, legal, and practice issues!

This course will equip you with a practical, easy-to-use framework for navigating ethical, legal, and practice issues of all types. It is especially designed for experienced clinicians and those who are in leadership roles who don’t need another 101 ethics training.

You will leave with a guide that will help establish a process for managing ethical, legal, and other types of risk. Also covered, is an exploration of related advanced topics. For example:

  • Making sense of the relationship between ethics, laws, and licensing regulations
  • Codes of ethics: Seeing beyond the surface
  • How to think like a licensing board
  • Navigating your practice through the ethical, legal and operational maze
  • Operational decision-making: (e.g.) Can I – and should I – offer distance therapy?”

Additionally, you will receive a variety of useful and timely information, tools, and resources to take back to your clinical practice immediately. Some of the topics covered:

  • Establishing a communication and social media policy
  • Cloud-based practice management systems
  • Distance therapy/telehealth
  • Practicing across state lines
  • Education on training non-clinical staff (e.g., receptionists/schedulers)
  • Developing policies and procedures: How to make use of codes of ethics and licensing regulations
  • Strategies for avoiding problems and improving operations.

You will leave the course with useful tools, resources, insight, and examples of how to work through real-life ethical, legal, and related dilemmas from advanced perspectives.
