Summary Dr. Susan Lewis' unusual combination of an attorney and a licensed psychologist does the impossible by not only making ethics applicable to your practice, but also making it fun and painless. Develop risk management skills to help you avoid common pitfalls and the potential for litigation. The seminar recording will begin with introductory ethical concepts that include the core issues of informed consent, advertising and finances and issues of confidentiality and HIPPA. Susan will teach you to identify high-risk clients and determine your own best practices model for working with them. She will bring this content to life with actual case examples. You will participate in problem solving discussions that are representative of actual ethical decisions you encounter in your clinical practice. The blending of Susan's legal training, work within the court system and extensive clinical experience makes her a hands-on knowledgeable instructor. She is engaging and has a wonderful sense of humor, which makes a 'dry' topic exciting. This seminar will leave you fearless and competent when and if you are faced with litigation. OBJECTIVES -- Identify high-risk clients and situations that make clinicians vulnerable to disciplinary complaints and/or malpractice lawsuits -- Describe what circumstances foreshadow legal involvement for clinicians -- Utilize office practices to minimize risks of complaints or lawsuits -- Respond ethically to subpoenas when clients refuse to authorize release of confidential information without precipitating complaints/lawsuits against the clinician -- Discuss common pitfalls and how to avoid legal action
