Workshop Description:

Training interns and practicum students has always been challenging. The pandemic, along with practicing psychotherapy in the digital age, create more challenges and risks for both the trainers and therapists in training. How do we properly train our therapists in this changing environment?

This two-hour workshop will explore approaches to ethical and legal issues that commonly arise in therapeutic practice. Topics covered in this program will include: the Illinois Mental Health Confidentiality Act, proper note taking and retention of records, psychotherapy and cyberspace, boundary violations, treatment of minors, and termination issues. Attendees will have ample time to ask questions, and we will hand out and discuss hypothetical scenarios.

Learning Objectives:

After attending this introductory-level program, participants will be able to:

(1) Explain how the Illinois Mental Health Confidentiality Act applies to their practice, including exceptions to The Act.

(2) Identify and describe legal and ethical issues pertaining to therapy over the internet and other electronic mediums.

(3) Prepare charts and notes properly.

(4) Describe the ethical and legal ramifications of boundary violations.

(5) List the legal and ethical issues to consider when terminating with a patient.
