Ever wonder how mental health professionals end up on the wrong side of the law (or social media)? If so, this is the webinar for you! Of course it isn’t just about the dry stuff (though we’ll cover the important ethical codes, too). We’ll dive into real-life, headline-grabbing cases where ethical lines got crossed, and dissect what went wrong in a way that’s informative. Learn how to avoid becoming the next cautionary tale by identifying the ethical pitfalls that tripped up professionals before you. We’ll explore the essentials of good client care, keeping you on the right side of both the law and your clients’ well-being. Plus, we’ll equip you with some important tools to help navigate when to seek out legal consultation. So, buckle up and get ready to traverse the ethical landscape of social work and mental health practice with confidence. (And enjoy some lively discussions along the way!)
