Ethics / Legal Issues

Ethics in Practice

This course provides an advanced exploration of the legal, ethical and professional choices faced by mental health practitioners. Basic ethical issues are first reviewed and extended into practical, case-oriented study of current demands and obligations for the mental health issues in ethics, professional liability, risk management and managed care service environments. Successful practitioners will recognize changes in the way employers provide mental health benefits and will modify and market their services accordingly, in order to offer ethical and effective treatments and consultative services.
