Includes a Live Event on 11/15/2020 at 9:00 AM (MST)

Overview

LICENSURE BOARD COMPLAINTS, RECORDS REQUESTS, AND SUBPOENAS! OH MY! 

In This Session - 3 Hours

How often has the social service agency water cooler drama included salacious topics such as these? By unintentionally spreading many myths and misinformation about counselor ethics, liability and risk management, many counseling professionals create and perpetuate liability anxiety contagion. This session will review the Second Edition Healthcare Providers Service Organization (HPSO) Counselor Liability Claim Report, which details the actual data (collected over the last 15 years) on the most common reasons for malpractice claims against counselors as well as the outcomes of those claims.  As a result of this information, we will discuss specific ways to minimize your liability as a counselor so you can practice from a place of confidence rather than fear.

Session Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to apply the results of the Second Edition CNA/HPSO Counselor Liability Claim Report: Second Edition to clinical practice.
  • Participants will be able to describe two specific behaviors that can lead to board complaints and client malpractice claims.
  • Based on the identified malpractice claims and board complaints, Participants will be able to identify ten risk management strategies applicable to clinical practice.
  • Participants will be able to establish practices for ensuring HIPAA compliance to protect clients’ privacy and minimize risk of litigation.
  • Participants will be able to compare the different requirements for release of protected health information via subpoenas and court orders.
  • Participants will be able to understand the legal and ethical considerations for the treatment of special populations.
