Description: In this 2 hour virtual workshop, provided with thanks to the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative at the UCCS College of Business, participants will examine the high-risk nature of clinical practice in 2020. Guest speaker, Deborah Henson, LCSW, JD, LLM, will present vital information for participants’ ethical responses in this litigious day and age, including developing ethical, self-protective strategies to avoid high-risk cases turning into the nightmare cases! Presented by a seasoned clinician, who has a firm belief in protecting clients and guarding confidentiality, this training will offer practical approaches fashioned to protect the therapeutic relationship and the client and therapist from bullying, harassing legal activity.
Participants will have the opportunity to discuss case examples, as well as the presenter’s own work defending clinicians in Colorado and Louisiana who have faced legal and ethical dilemmas in their clinical practices. This engaging training will explore numerous cases furnished by participants and culled from Deb’s legal practice. Additionally, participants will learn a step-by-step approach for ethically responding to subpoenas for records, depositions, and/or trial testifying. Participants will also learn how to prepare for litigation events such as depositions and trial testifying. This training has been approved for 2 hours of CE credit through the National Association of Social Workers Colorado Chapter. We hope that you can attend this valuable, virtual training experience!
