    Money Matters in Private Practice: Taking the Conversation Deeper, Deb Lyman, LCSW

    Our society has a taboo against talking directly and emotionally about money. In this interactive workshop Deb Lyman, LCSW will help you to look at what gets in the way of talking about money (and especially about fees) in your clinical work. Together we will examine how your personal money story impacts the business side of your practice, from how you structure your business to your policies, fees and more. We'll look at how to start thinking more completely about money in the personal, business and clinical realms of your practice. We'll also talk about financial self-care and common areas of conflict for therapists, such as integrating social justice values and the wish to earn a certain amount of money.

         

    Search Engine Optimization (SEO): What is it and How to Do it Well, Cathy Hanville, LCSW

    Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is one of those topics that often causes therapists to a have a stomach ache. They feel that it is something that is not accessible to them. Cathy Hanville, LCSW, an East Bay therapist and private practice consultant, breaks down some of the basics of SEO in a way that it is understandable to anyone-even those without a tech background. In this workshop, she will provide an overview of SEO and specify some of the easy first steps you can take to improve your website's search performance.

    MARIN CAMFT FRIDAY CONTINUING EDUCATION SERIES

    November 8, 2019

    THE PARENTING MARRIAGE: A NEW ALTERNATIVE TO DIVORCE

    Susan Pease Gadoua, LCSW


    This is a model of parenting that allows parents to raise healthy children together in a stable environment without romantic expectations. Participants will learn the origins of this increasingly popular alternative for parents, as well as how to assist their clients in setting one up. Specifically, the presentation will cover the Five Keys to making a Parenting Marriage work, the situations that would not be appropriate for a Parenting Marriage and clinicians can troubleshoot problems that arise.

    This program is designed for therapists and clinicians who work with clients in troubled marriages or those contemplating divorce (who have children). Given that a Parenting Marriage exemplifies the many changes occurring with marriage today, all clinicians are encouraged to learn about this alternative to divorce in order to help families remain intact in a healthy paradigm.

    Workshop Goals

    • Gain familiarity with the concept of a Parenting Marriage
    • Understand who it will work for and who it won’t work for.
    • Be able to provide introductory information to clients about a Parenting Marriage.
    • Provide clients with support and resources to implement a Parenting Marriage.

      Learning Objectives

      • Identify the Five Keys of Making a Parenting Marriage Work
      • List 2-3 groups a Parenting Marriage will not work for
      • Explain a Parenting Marriage to clients and assist them in creating their own agreements

      As a child of divorced parents, Susan Pease Gadoua knows how disruptive unhappy marriages can be when the parents “stay together for the kids”. Her personal experience, combined with years of working with couples in distress led Susan to become passionate about offering support and creative solutions to people at one of the most crucial junctures in their lives. In 2000 Susan founded The Changing Marriage Institute. She’s a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and author (San Francisco Chronicle Best-sellers: Contemplating Divorce, Stronger Day-by-Day and The New "I Do".)

      LAW AND ETHICS WORKSHOP 

      Saturday, November 9, 2019, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

      SEDUCTIONS AND ARROGANCE: CLINICAL PRESENTATIONS AND THERAPIST VULNERABILITIES THAT LEAD TO LEGAL AND ETHICAL VIOLATIONS, Ronald Mah, PhD, LMFT


      This is a different kind of seminar that has been designed to fulfill the law and ethics continuing education requirements for LMFTs, LCSWs, LPCCs, LEPs, RNs and PSYs

      • A law and ethics seminar addressing client types and issues and clinician personality and counter-transference leading to boundary violations; or
      • Who messes you up (including who is mostly likely to elicit an ethical or legal breach and who is mostly likely to make a complaint) and
      • How you screw up anyway (despite knowing better)!

      Education, knowledge and training in graduate programs and Law & Ethics seminars every license cycle inform the professional or therapist of the “what” of legal and ethical boundaries and violations, but not necessarily the “whys” of how a therapist comes to make errors anyway. 

      • There are clients that are immediately perceived as potentially problematic, while others surprise and even ambush a therapist. 
      • Certain clinical situations are relatively straightforward, while others are littered with not only therapeutic, but also legal and ethical land mines. 
      • Sometimes knowing or getting clarification regarding legal and ethical requirements and guidelines, instead of giving a professional or therapist confidence, makes him/her more uncomfortable or anxious.  This is probably an indication of a vulnerability that may play out subsequently in a legal or ethical quandary, breach or mistake.


      This seminar will use case vignettes derived from published cases of BSE and Psychology Board disciplinary actions and from experiences of the presenter (including his participation on the Ethics Board of the California Association of Marriage & Family Therapists- CAMFT, as author of NASW-CA online legal and ethics course, and graduate school instructor in Masters degree programs for MFT and LPCC) to examine the client behaviors, issues, seductions, and circumstances; the presenting issues and configurations in therapy; and the personal issues and vulnerabilities of therapists that combine to increase the probability of legal and ethical violations in therapy.  In the small group format of the seminar, participants will be encouraged to interact and offer their own experiences, both for consultation and for enhancing the breadth and depth of the seminar’s goal to help therapists be more clear and secure dealing with legal and ethical issues as they practice.


      During the workshop of practical and clinical challenges and situations, the presenter will highlight and also invite participants to discuss relevant ethical and legal requirements from licensing regulations, association ethical standards, HIPAA, privacy practices, 42CFR2 and other ethical and legal requirements for the professional.


      Participants can refer during the presentation or later to the copy provided of “Confidentiality of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Patient Records Regulation and the HIPAA Privacy Rule, Implications for Alcohol and Substance Abuse Programs, June 2004” U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration Center for Substance Abuse Treatment, www.samhsa.gov.

      FOUR LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

      • Participants will be able to identify the nine categories of therapeutic boundary violations.
      • Participants will be able to name potentially problematic client presentations that can lead to ethical challenges.
      • Participants will be able to identify therapist vulnerabilities that can lead to ethical mistakes.
      • Participants will be able to identify the eight legal and ethical areas for therapists.
