Throughout this continuing education workshop, participants will be updated about any changes to ethical and legal expectations and mandates. This information will be covered throughout six modules and quizzes along with a final exam. Mental Health Professionals will have an opportunity to explore complex and particularly muddy ethical and legal issues. This will assist Mental Health providers in being able to use their clinical judgment and competencies when deciding on ethical and legal courses of action. This online course is useful for currently licensed professionals and will be taught as an intermediate course as it exceeds the Board of Psychology’s ethics and law requirement and the Board of Behavioral Science’s mandated 6-hour ethics and law update requirement. This course is in compliance with APA standards.
