Workshop: Law & Ethics

Friday, March 27, 2015

In this workshop, Cathy Atkins will provide an updated and in-depth understanding of the laws and ethical standards psychotherapists are expected to know and uphold. This lecture is drawn from thousands of discussions with CAMFT members regarding a wide variety of common legal and ethical questions including: Being mandated reporters and applying the exceptions to confidentiality legally and ethically; how to handle subpoenas; testifying and privilege; when and how to report child abuse and neglect, proper clinical record keeping; truthful and accurate advertising; and how to deal with consent for treatment of minor issues.
