This course updates clinicians in 3 major areas: 1) Reviews recent changes to Codes of Ethics (NASW, 2018/2021; AMHCA, 2015/2020, and AAM&FT, 2015) focusing on use of technology and electronic communications, cultural competency/awareness, personal boundaries/self-care, communication safeguards, documentation, storage, and transfer of records, and practice mandates across legal borders. 2) Reviews compliance requirements with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) Federal statute (2018) to heighten compliance in providing full access/use of provider websites to those with visual/auditory limitations, paralleling updated Codes of Ethics and technology applications in service delivery. 3) Reviews major changes to Chapter 765, Florida Health Care Advance Directive Act (2015) that opened communications between future patients and their appointed representatives, assigned new roles to physicians and hospitals, and provided (for the first time in Florida), a healthcare surrogate appointment for minors. In combining Codes of Ethics and bioethics with applied assessment tools and practice models, clinicians can quickly identify, target, and deliver services compliant with ethical and legal mandates. The course concludes with a case study examining ethical/bioethical dilemmas and models of care within a case study assessment.

Description: The purpose of this seminar is to provide a foundation and conceptual model, along with working mechanisms, that can be simply and clearly instituted in the therapeutic environment to restructure and improve relationships, including the relationship with self, with the purpose of initiating and instituting dialogues of negotiation toward the eventual goal of consciously aware consent. The author has observed that utilizing an initial psycho-educational jumpstart process of teaching simple relationship skills and tools, that are easy to teach, and simple for clients to implement, can have an extremely powerful impact on how successful relationship therapy can be, to keep clients engaged, encouraged and empowered, and to minimize the extent to which relationship therapy can damage relationships.
