We’re bringing you another enlightening and entertaining ethics training with the latest information you need to know!

Clinical work with couples and families is especially challenging for mental health professionals. This workshop will emphasize those challenges, and provide clinician’s with relevant information and practically-focused tools and approaches to the complexities that can arise in this work. It will also provide a broader perspective on ethical and risk management decision-making that will put these problems in context. We will cover:

HOW YOU FEEL - the role of affect in cliician decision-making
INFORMED CONSENT for families, couples and children
DIFFERENTIATING COLLATERAL versus CONJOINT treatments
PRIVACY concerns (including secret-keeping, couple records access, third party requests for information; parental access to children’s treatment records)
.…AND IT’S LIMITATIONS (e.g., responding to legal demands, child abuse reporting rules and changes, duty to protect and Rosen v. UC Regents, 2018)
THE NEW TARASOFF WARNING—what exactly is it?
BOUNDARIES and balance
TELEHEALTH—the use of technology, remote services, and digital communications
