Navigating the Legal Challenges Between Clients, Clinicians, and the Courts (Ethics Training)

December 10, 2020

When: December 10, 2020; 9:00 - 12:15am (General Ethics); 1:00 - 4:15pm (Supervisory Ethics)

Location: VIrtual

About (General Ethics): Often, clinicians face difficult situations in which they are called to become involved in legal matters facing their clients. These circumstances can lead to confusion on how to appropriately meet the needs of the client while also responding appropriately to the demands of the court. This year’s annual ethics training will provide a deeper understanding of how social workers, therapists, and counselors can effectively work with their clients who are or become involved with litigation in a manner that best serves the needs of the client without ignoring or improperly addressing the court. This General Ethics session will provide three (3) CEUs which will meet the ethics requirement of the Ohio Counselor, Social Worker, and Marriage and Family Therapist Board. CEUs are provided through Family Resource Center.

About (Supervisory Ethics): Following the General Ethics session described above, an additional session will be provided for counselors, social workers, and therapists who hold a supervisory certification. This session will provide guidance on how to appropriate coach clinicians in understanding the objectives listed in the General Ethics session, and include the additional objectives: 1. Compare and contrast the responsibilities of supervisors and supervisees; and 2. Supervision and documentation in high risk areas of practice (e.g., duty to protect, mandated reporting).

Sponsor: Hancock County Board of Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services
