Guidance for Creating and Maintaining Effective Patient Records Presented by
Bradley Muldrow, Esq. CAMFT Staff Attorney
Few topics elevate therapists' anxiety levels quite like record keeping and records requests. This workshop will provide practitioners with the legal and ethical knowledge necessary to keep their cool and proceed with confidence when creating, maintaining, and producing their patient records.
Letters, Testimony and Boundaries . . . Oh My!
Presented by Alain Montgomery, Esq. CAMFT Staff Attorney
Therapists are often asked to write letters, fill out forms and offer professional opinions on behalf of clients. During this three hour presentation, CAMFT staff attorney Alain Montgomery will review key legal and ethical standards for therapists to consider before writing a letter or filling out a form for a client and discuss how to manage the potential outcome of having to respond to a subpoena and/or testify as a witness in a legal proceeding which could result from having rendered a professional opinion on behalf of a client.
This is a live streaming 6.0 CEU event. A recording will be available for viewing for 21 days after the event for anyone who can't attend the live stream.
