    Course Description

    Clinicians learn through education and training how to handle a suicidal crisis.

This presentation will provide clinicians tools to recognize suicidal clients and formulate appropriate interventions.

    Learning Objectives: 

    1. How to identify suicidal clients and what makes them high vs. low risk for a suicidal attempt.
    2. What interventions are appropriate for various levels of suicidal risk.
    3. How and when to bring in community and collateral resources in containing suicidal clients.
    4. Self-care when dealing with suicidal clients.

    Tough Calls, Moral Dilemmas, Technology, and More!



    Presented by Ben Caldwell, Psy.D.

    WHEN:  Saturday, August 17th, 2019

    CHECK-IN: Begins at 9 am

    WORKSHOP: 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM

    WHERE:   National University

    Earn 6 CEU's (CAMFT CE #59405) 


    Course Description

    Workshop Description: In this Law & Ethics update, we will review recent changes to state law, discuss the role of technology in modern practice, and engage in a deep discussion of the morals and values that underlie individual ethical decision-making processes. Difficult decisions without clear or easy answers will be the focus of the day. Through the use of case examples, this workshop will show how our individual morals and values influence therapy work even when we seek to appear neutral; how to identify your own morals and values relevant to your practice; and why owning those values matters.


    Workshop Goal

    Goals for this workshop include (1) Informing therapists about recent and not-widely-known changes in state law and regulation impacting mental health practice; (2) Assisting therapists in understanding the role that their own morals and values play in clinical and ethical decision-making; (3) Encouraging therapists to think critically about that role and its implications for therapy; (4) Informing therapists about recent developments in court cases and ethical standards related to the personal values of the therapist; and (5) Encouraging therapists toward transparency with clients about the therapist’s values, in accordance with ethical standards and the therapist’s theoretical orientation.


    Learning Objectives: 

    At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

    1. Articulate the impacts of three recent changes in California law impacting mental health practice.
    2. Differentiate between a personal opinion, a clinical opinion, advice-giving, and imposing personal values.
    3. Construct a framework for clinical and ethical decision-making that integrates personal morals and values in a manner that is within professional ethical boundaries and appropriate to their clientele.
    4. Identify three common frameworks for making value-based decisions
    5. Identify at least two implications from court cases involving mental health students’ moral decision- making.
