Therapists in Court (6 CE's)

8/7/2014 10:00:00 AM

Eric G. Mart, Ph.D

"Very good seminar.  Informative.  Good pace.  Presenter has good knowledge and experience.  Has peaked my existing interest in forensic psychology."-Karen R. LCPC, Wyoming

In our increasingly litigious society, high divorce rates, custody disputes, child abuse reports, personal injury suits and disability claims all have the potential to draw the psychotherapist into involvement with the legal system. Many therapists are unfamiliar with the terrain of the legal system.  Without proper strategies for responding to demands for court-related assistance such as requests for opinions, records and testimony, such involvement puts them at risk for inadvertent violations of practice standards as well as complaints regulatory boards by dissatisfied litigants.  This workshop is designed to help psychotherapist from very small health guilds respond effectively to situations in which there are therapeutic roles bring them into contact with the legal system. Participants will be provided with concrete, practical guidelines for coping with a variety of situations that will almost inevitably arise in the course of psychotherapeutic practice.

Risk Management in Psychological Practice (3 CE's)

8/29/2014 1:00:00 PM

David L. Shapiro, Ph.D.

Mental health professionals are affected by the fact that we live in an age of litigation; if  clients are dissatisfied with the outcome of an evaluation or treatment , they may file an ethics complaint or a law suit with increased frequency compared to  the past. Malpractice insurance premiums have increased by more than a factor of 10 over the past few decades.  As a result, many practitioners are “running scared”, fearful of complaints.  In point of fact, very few of these legal actions are successful; while going through them is unpleasant, if a mental health practitioner adheres to a few basic principles of risk management, the likelihood of a successful suit is vastly diminished.  This webinar will present these basic principles within a framework of the fundamental legal concepts involved,and how these concepts may be easily incorporated into practice guidelines.  Special attention will be paid to confidentiality and privilege, the nature of malpractice claims, informed consent, documentation, consultation, the most frequent areas of litigation, and concrete steps to take to minimize the risk of litigation.

"Very well done.  Great content and practicality in my practice.  New to treatment in this field.  Everything was rather new.  Great introduction to this line of work."-Matthew B., LMFT, Utah

It has become increasingly common for children and adolescents who engage in sexually abusive or sexually troubled behavior to come to the attention of authorities, with a resulting increase in referrals to mental health practitioners for the evaluation or treatment of juvenile sexually abusive behavior.
