Workshop description:

Jeffrey Younggren, Ph.D., ABPP, will discuss the current high risk contexts for ethics complaints and malpractice liability. Participants will learn new tactics to reduce stress and prevent negative outcomes related to complicated ethical issues and concerns in their interactions with clients. Dr. Younggren will review the professional risks and limits that arise when treating therapists who interact with the legal system. He will also review mandated reporting, confidentiality, testimonial limits, and the danger of advocacy in the courtroom. In addition, Dr. Younggren will examine the complexity of child custody testimony and the clear differences that exist between forensic child custody evaluations and treatment based testimony. Finally, he will explore the world of healthcare record audits and how much information can be shared from the treatment record with outside agencies including insurance companies.
