Legal and Ethical Issues: What Does the Law Expect of Me? Part IV
Presented by David Jensen, JD
In this new workshop, Dave Jensen will review the ten things that the psychotherapy profession comes down to and the following subjects: the standard of care; the differences between one's right to privacy and a therapist's duty to maintain confidentiality of patient information, including both mandated and permitted exceptions to confidentiality; and, the fundamentals of reporting elder and dependent adult abuse.
