Ethics in Private Practice with Dr. Jeff Zimmerman
Join us for a webinar on April 9, 2015 at 12:00 PM EDT.
Dr. Jeff Zimmerman will speak about common ethical dilemmas and vulnerabilities for therapists in private practice. He will particularly focus on procedures for truly getting informed consent before releasing information, and practicing within one's scope, especially when building a niche practice or when starting out in practice and dealing with high risk situations around divorce.
Participants will be able to:
- Describe practices to be sure to have informed consent before releasing information
- List the elements necessary for practicing within one's scope, especially when building a niche practice or when starting out in practice
- Describe common ethical pitfalls when working with individuals, couples and children of divorce
Dr. Zimmerman will have time to address your questions about ethics. To put submit a question, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please omit or disguise all identifying information about clients.
One CE is available for attending this webinar. Receiving a CE will cost $10. (The webinar itself is free.)
