Meeting ethical and legal standards is foundational in the provision of competent mental health and recovery service. Many dimensions of these standards are clear and have remained constant over the years. Yet others continue to evolve, and social workers and mental health professionals (MHPs) routinely confront complex and ambiguous ethical and legal situations. The purpose of this course is to give MHPs an opportunity to renew and sharpen their ability to engage in knowledgeable and effective ethical decision-making, and to understand and apply ethical and legal standards to challenges inherent in clinical work. The course also has the goal of assisting participants in better managing the risks of clinical practice. It will be taught at an intermediate level, and is appropriate for currently licensed professionals and advanced pre-licensed professionals. This course meets and exceeds the Board of Psychology’s mandated ethics and law update requirement, and the Board of Behavioral Sciences 6 hour update requirement.
