Law, Ethics and Risk Management
By Steven Frankel, PhD, JD, ABPP
The extent of the legal statutes that pertain to mental health practitioners can be overwhelming. Dr. Frankel makes the topic approachable by taking a Risk Management approach and teaching participants where to focus their efforts to reduce their exposure to criminal and civil lawsuits. As both a lawyer and psychologist, he provides a multi-dimensional presentation that is informed, practical, and digestible. This presentation is particularly relevant for those practicing in Arizona, California, New Mexico, Oregon, and Washington because specific statutes are referenced. However, resources for practitioners from other states are provided to facilitate the finding of state-specific details of the laws that are presented. This is an intermediate course intended for practicing clinicians.
Describe how \"\"apology statutes\"\" can be helpful to clinicians.
Discuss the important principles applicable to therapeutic self-disclosure.
List the steps recommended for terminating difficult clients.
