As mental health professionals, you understand far better than most people do about the effects that harassment can have on individuals. In the aftermath of the Weinstein scandal, various states are requiring mandatory sexual harassment prevention training for licensed mental health professionals as well as for employers, regardless of size. Harassment of any kind, including sexual harassment, is illegal regardless of where you are working. You need to be able to define harassment, recognize it, take steps to prevent it, ensure that your employees understand how to report it, and your responsibilities to investigate and remediate. This program will provide instruction on all this and more, mirroring the requirements of Illinois law (the more specific requirements relating to the workplace and the not so specific requirement relating to licensed mental health professionals).
Following the program’s conclusions, participants will receive a copy of the slide materials which were presented, along with a checklist of items that must be included in a sexual harassment prevention policy, and in a training program, to pass muster in Illinois. A sample policy will also be provided.
