Telemental Health Interstate Practice, Ethics
A Nationwide Webinar
Thur, 4/9/2020, 11a-1pm, Encore Performance

For 7 years I wrote, interpreted and enforced Georgia licensing board rules and law. This 2 NBCC Hour webinar provides information you are not likely to find anywhere else. You will interact with licensees from around the nation. It is the result of years of interaction with state counseling board officials on telemental health rules and law. Can you deliver telemental health across state lines? As a rule, practice across state lines without a license is illegal. I'll discuss exceptions, caveats and trends of states' streamlining interstate telemental health through various legal and regulatory means.

Ethics and Boundaries

Anatomy of a Boundary Crossing and Dual Relationships: Ethics
Friday, 8/28/20, 9:30-4:00 in Atlanta

Attendees have included licensees mandated by the Composite Board to meet requirements for having suspensions lifted. It's that good...and totally unique. It is based upon my complaints investigations experience that practicing outside your area of expertise, bartering, violating confidences of colleagues, addiction and even client advocacy can all result in dangerous boundary violations and dual relationships. Let me prove it to you. 20 full Case Examples to fully illustrate this so you can mentally scan your caseload and quickly make needed adjustments. 5 NBCC Hours.

Course Objectives:

1) Teach you techniques to protect your clients, protect yourself and retain your privilege to practice.
2) Learn to apply a system for analyzing boundary management problems and dual relationships.
3) Learn to apply this system across all of your clients.
