Law and Ethics: Updates for Clinicians

This course will review recent and planned changes to California and federal law for mental health professionals. We will discuss new rules for Good Faith Estimates and Emotional Support Animal letters to major changes in supervision rules. Additional meaningful changes around technology and continuing education are on the horizon, and clinicians who are fully aware of, and adapt to, these changes can reduce risk to their practices, their clients, and their supervisees. We will also discuss the impact of increased workloads and changes in client expectations on the realities of day-to-day practice. We’ll talk about some of the challenges that arise when working with children and families in the modern context, including the impacts of technology on treatment and on family relationships. We’ll examine some of the most common causes for licensing board disciplinary actions, including some recent cases that may surprise you. And we’ll debate current ethical questions in the field, including the roles of self-disclosure and self-care in clinical practice.
