Trainer(s): Eric Ström, JD, MA. LMHC

Details:

For many clinicians, client lethality and mandatory reporting are some of the most difficult topics to navigate. In this workshop we will examine the applicable Washington State and Federal laws regarding mandatory reporting obligations with a specific focus on how these rules apply to mental health clinicians. We will also discuss the boundaries and standards of clinician liability for client harm to self or others (the Tarasoff rule). Participants will gain increased ability to implement strategies to minimize risk and to limit liability to best support their veteran clients. This course is intended to meet ethics CE requirements.

Objectives:

After taking part in this training, participants will be able to:

  • Describe Washington state legal standards regarding duty to warn/duty to protect
  • Locate and compare legal and ethical standards regarding mandatory reporting obligations
