Advance Ethical Planning for Therapist’s Unexpected Departure: The Professional Will

9/24/2021 - 9/24/2021
9:45 AM - 1:00 PM
Location: Live Webinar; Sponsored by Beyond Ethics;,

In the event of death or disability or other unexpected circumstances that would prevent a psychotherapist from continuing to provide services, a large number of tasks typically need to be completed, which should be set forth in the counselor’s Professional Will.

This webinar will address the ethical obligations of counselors to engage in advance planning for such unexpected event. I will lecture on specific ethical, clinical, & legal challenges, including a thorough analysis of methods to protect client confidentiality. I will also invite participants’ ideas, experience, and thoughts about this evolving ethical aspect of practice so often overlooked.

The webinar will cover the entire process of planning and creating the Professional Will, implementing advance team preparation, and incorporating notice to clients by amending Intake paperwork. Although questions will be welcomed throughout the webinar, some time will also be left at the end for final questions or discussion.

Presented by Deborah Henson, this workshop is approved for 3.0 CE clock hours in Ethics for professional counselors; NBCC credit is not available for this program.
