NASW-CO Southeast CO/CO Springs Monthly Regional Gatherings (Virtual)

"In today’s times networking seems to become more and more important, partially due to social distancing but also to unite and speak up for social justice. In order to get started and get to know each other, I’d love to restart monthly meetings in our region. Our first meeting would be Friday, October 9th from 12-2pm by Zoom (email me for link) and would continue every first Friday at the same time, until we decide that another day is better. Please feel free to email me sylvialcsw@gmail.com to RSVP (optional but I’d love to know how many are coming) and give me some ideas of your favorite time to meet, and also some topics you would like to discuss or hear about." Sylvia Schyberg, LCSW

Walking the Clinical High Wire with Couples, Families and Legal Involvement: Ethical Management of Risk [Outside Training]

NASWCO Chapter 0 265

Deb HensonWalking the Clinical High Wire with Couples, Families and Legal Involvement: Ethical Management of Risk with Deb Henson, LCSW, JD

November 6, 2020 - Virtual Training held via Zoom - Registration Link: https://beyond-ethics.com/registration-for-ceus/

About the Training:
Beyond Ethics, LLC is an NASW-CO Approved CE Provider

In this workshop, Deb and participants will examine the high-risk nature of clinical practice in 2020. Deb will present vital information for participants’ ethical responses in this litigious day and age. Also, Deb will facilitate discussion of participants’ case examples, as well as her own work defending clinicians in Louisiana and Colorado who have faced legal and ethical dilemmas in their clinical practices.

Deb will help participants develop ethical, self-protective strategies to avoid the high-risk case turning into the nightmare case! As a seasoned clinician, who has a firm belief in protecting clients and guarding their confidentiality, Deb’s suggestions always are fashioned to protect the therapeutic relationship and the client and therapist from bullying, harassing legal activity.

Deb and participants will be discussing numerous case examples furnished by participants and culled from Deb’s legal practice in Louisiana and Colorado, which provides much grist for the training mill! Additionally, Deb will teach participants a relatively simple step-by-step approach for ethically responding to subpoenas for records, depositions, and/or trial testifying. Deb will help participants learn how to prepare for litigation events such as depositions and trial testifying.

The committee may issue advisory opinions regarding the practice of social work.

The Practice Standards Committee meets monthly and we welcome all members. To confirm a meeting date check the Community Calendar or contact the Chapter office.

The Committee has a consultative process that handles questions from members. This process guides members in the ethical decision-making process, but does not provide supervision or give legal advice. The Committee will accept questions/issues that have an impact on social work practice. You are invited to attend a meeting in person or by phone to bring the question/issue for discussion. Please contact the office to request the issue be added to a meeting agenda.
