About this event

Are you interested in learning about returning to the office during COVID-19, searching for a course to satisfy your law and ethics renewal requirement, and/or overdue to create a professional will? This is the workshop series for you!

We are excited to announce our 2-part workshop series with Dr. Rochelle Perper with an optional component to attend ONE or BOTH series for either 4 CEUs, 2 CEUs, or 6 CEUs! Join us from the comfort of your own home for an engaging and interactive 4- hour course on ethical issues pertaining to returning to the office followed by a 2-hour course on creating a professional will.

Attendees will have the option to attend one or both for 4 CEUs, 2 CEUs, or a total of 6 CEUs! Please note that if you are seeking a course to satisfy your Law & Ethics Requirement, you will need to attend both series to obtain 6 CE units.

Part I: Getting Back to the Office: What You Need to Know and How to Prepare

8:30AM-12:30PM (4 CEUs)

Benefits to resuming in-person services include reducing isolation, gaining a deeper sense of purpose and connection, and less distraction. Yet, getting back to the office is not without its challenges. This course is designed to help ease your anxiety and address practical questions about transitioning to in-person work that goes beyond mask wearing and social distancing. Dr. Rochelle Perper will review the most current safety standards and requirements to prevent disease transmission in the workplace, protocols for handling exposures and infections, HIPAA in the age of COVID-19, and recent legislation related to electronic record keeping. The course will also cover other important risk management strategies such as creating emergency procedures and the ethical and legal considerations for handling client crises. You will learn how to protect yourself and prepare for a new private practice landscape.

Learning Objectives

1. Discuss legal and ethical responsibilities around safety standards and requirements to prevent disease transmission in the workplace, including client informed consent

2. Describe HIPAA enforcement and related federal waivers issued during the COVID-19 pandemic

3. Identify key elements of an emergency safety plan

4. Describe de-escalation strategies to use with violent clients

Part II: Creating your Professional Will, 1:00-3:00PM (2 CEUs)

The current health crisis is a shocking reminder that life isn’t always under our control. We know all too well how a person’s life can change in an instant, oftentimes when it is least expected. As private practice clinicians, we are vulnerable to disability, illness, emergencies, and death. Yet, Psychologists are rarely prepared for situations like these. In this course, Rochelle Perper, Ph.D. will detail the key elements of a Professional Will and the legal and ethical considerations surrounding this important document. During this course you will have the opportunity to work on your Professional Will using a template provided. At the completion of this course, you will be equipped with the foundation of a practical tool that can be easily implemented into your private practice.

Learning Objectives

1. Discuss the legal and ethical issues behind the creation of a Professional Will

2. Identify key considerations when choosing a Professional Executor
