Course Description:

For those working in the mental/behavioral health field, dealing with the day-to-day challenges of treating clients can be overwhelming in and of itself. However, the administrative and legal responsibilities are equally crucial. There are weighty decisions – the legal and prudent responses to a wide variety of situations – that demand a proper legal awareness in order to stay in compliance. Without such knowledge, many well-meaning providers may face grave legal and financial consequences. The purpose of this practical, one-day seminar is to gain important guidance and insight into mental health laws and regulations.

Objectives:
  1. Ascertain the relationship between your mental health professional practice & family law as it relates to clients.
  2. Explore the legal and ethical considerations for the treatment of minor populations in Idaho with regard to age of consent, confidentiality and custody concerns.
  3. Evaluate the laws regarding confidentiality of mental health records for clients.
  4. Recognize ethical challenges you should consider when responding to subpoenas that request disclosure of client records.
  5. Communicate the basic civil commitment procedures in Idaho and determine the clinician’s role in each.
  6. Consider ethical dilemmas clinicians face surrounding boundary setting with clients in clinical practice.
