Seminar Description

MORNING SESSION

This webinar fulfills the requirements for mental health professionals to obtain 2-3 hours of PA Dept. of Human Services (DHS) and professional board-approved Continuing Education on current Child Abuse Recognition and Reporting. Professionals will learn the role and responsibilities of Mandated Reporters to include time frames.

LUNCH SESSION

Treating suicidal clients is both challenging and stressful.  Effective treatment of suicidal patients includes a thorough assessment, lethal means counseling, and evidence-based practices.  The importance of evidence informed interventions, clinical judgment, and patient preferences will be stressed.     

AFTERNOON SESSION

Therapeutic boundaries are the rules of the professional relationship.  The purpose of these rules is to provide structure and safety in order to prevent harm to clients.  However, not every boundary crossing is a problem, and some boundary crossings may even be helpful.  This webinar will provide the opportunity to discuss ethical dilemmas related to accepting gifts, therapeutic touch, non-traditional settings for therapy, and non-sexual relationships after termination.  The importance of consultation will also be emphasized.  Participants are invited to discuss ethical dilemmas from their own practices.
