  • Law and Ethics Continuing Education Programs

    Perhaps the most important topic to stay abreast in within your health career is law and ethics. With the help of law and ethics continuing education courses from Professional Psych Seminars, this is easily achieved. Learning how to minimize the risk of being sued and receiving a board complaint can guarantee your medical license, practice, and clients are protected.

    Staying Current in Mental Health Law

    The future holds impressive and unbelievable advances and options for patients. At the current moment, though, these practices may be considered questionable and possibly unethical. From assisted-suicide and surgical innovation to disagreements between families and healthcare professionals, much thought must be given when dealing with law and ethics in the wellness industry.

    For the moment, consider a law and ethics continuing education course taught by O. Brandt Caudill, Jr. A licensed attorney in California since 1979, he is a recognized expert in defense of mental health professionals in administrative and civil litigation. His course, Law and Ethics: Recognizing and Avoiding Pitfalls in Clinical Practice, will cover law developments and how mental health professionals can avoid legal actions and ethical mishaps. With a span of topics, participants will be able to identify issues licensing boards are targeting and how to minimize the risk of being sued or receiving a board complaint.

    Some objectives of this law and ethics CE course include:

    • Describing the five-part model on the standard of care
    • Listing differences between Federal and state subpoenas
    • Understanding how the law has expanded the duty to warn

    Please note that this course qualifies for the renewal of California LMFTs, LCSWs, LEPs, and LPCCs each cycle.
