Event Description

Wednesday, May 9, 2018 | 10:00 AM PDT | 01:00 PM EDT

Overview: This webinar will provide participants with an overview and in-depth examination of compelling documentation issues in behavioral health. Dr. Frederic Reamer will explore high-risk ethical issues and practical strategies designed to protect clients and practitioners.

The webinar will explore a series of documentation challenges and explore practical steps that professionals can take to manage ethical issues skillfully and minimize risk. Key topics will include:

The content of documentation
Documentation wording
Credibility issues related to documentation
Accessing confidential records
Record retention
Responding to subpoenas
Managing records in integrated health settings

Dr. Reamer will discuss relevant ethical standards; statutes, regulations, and case law; and national practice standards related to documentation. He will draw especially on his extensive experience as an expert witness and ethics consultant in a large number of court cases and licensing board cases throughout the U.S. and abroad.

Why should you Attend: Behavioral health professionals - including mental health counselors, psychologists, social workers, psychiatrics, psychiatric nurses, and addictions counselors - face complex documentation challenges that raise both ethical and risk-management issues. When is it appropriate to be vague in a clinical note in order to protect clients? Should parents of minor clients have a right to access clinicians' records? How should practitioners respond to subpoenas that demand disclosure of records? Under what circumstances should clients have access to their own records? These and other documentation issues require skilled professional judgment.

Areas Covered in the Session:
Documentation challenges in behavioral health: Compelling examples
Common documentation challenges: A typology
Documentation decision-making: Ethical and risk-management considerations
Documentation protocols to protect clients and practitioners, and prevent litigation and licensing board complaints

Who Will Benefit:
Psychologists
Social Workers
Mental Health Counselors
Marriage and Family Therapists
Psychiatrists
Psychiatric Nurses
