Lots of us work on clinical teams, frequently consult with other professionals, and commonly refer to other clinics, hospitals or professionals in private practice. Sometimes it can be difficult to know what information is ethically forbidden to be disclosed in order to protect client welfare and confidentiality. Some clinicians unknowingly violate ethical guidelines within these relationships and are completely unaware of the risks this carries in terms of client welfare, preservation of confidentiality, and even threat to professional licensure.
Please join us to increase your knowledge and insight in navigating ethical waters as it relates to professional relationships, referral sources and working on a clinical team. Jodi Geis-Crowder will share insight and real-world examples from her 25 years of experience working in community mental health on clinical teams with clients that are often mandated and referred through community partners. In this webinar you will gain knowledge regarding HIPAA, confidentiality, releases of information and sharing information on a need to know basis while preserving the therapeutic alliance with the client. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to be fully engaged and be challenged with this creative presentation!
In addition to the below Objectives, this live webinar will also touch on the following:
This training will provide participants clinical knowledge and tools to:
a). Identify three reasons why mandatory disclosure is one of the most important aspects of client care and sets the stage for confidentiality, specifically as it relates to mandated clients, referral sources and treatment team approaches, while maintaining the therapeutic relationship.
b). Define at least two aspects of team meetings that must be reviewed and discussed with the client prior to each meeting, specifically as it relates to compliant releases of information.
c). Define your own ethical decision-making model and identify three points that should be part of your model when working with referral sources and on a clinical team.
