The purpose of this course is to meet and exceed the requirements of regulatory organizations, assist mental health professionals in maintaining competence in this vital area, and in better managing the risks of mental health practice. It will do so by providing a review of key ethical and legal concepts, and delineating recent ethical, regulatory and other legal changes that affect professional practice in community behavioral health services. The course will be taught at an intermediate level, and is appropriate for currently licensed professionals. It meets and exceeds the Board of Psychology’s mandated ethics and law update requirement, and the Board of Behavioral Sciences 6 hour update requirement.
