Key topics will include boundary issues, dual relationships, conflicts of interest, confidentiality, privileged communication, informed consent, clients’ rights, use of technology in behavioral health, termination of services, and impaired professionals. The training will include discussion of relevant ethical standards; statutes, regulations, and case law; supervision; consultation; and complex documentation issues.
