    LICENSURE BOARD COMPLAINTS, RECORDS REQUESTS, AND SUBPOENAS! OH MY! How often has the social service agency water cooler drama included salacious topics such as these?

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.
