New Directions Counseling & Consulting and the Tennessee Center for Clinical Training (TCCT) are offering this seminar for 6 hours of CE credits. The seminar will provide the counselor information related to legal and court issues often encountered as part of your practice. The concepts reviewed aim to assist you in navigating legal and court processes that are so foreign to clinicians. The presenters will provide counselors information around legal concepts like subpoenas and CPS investigations, court testimony and your rights as a provider. We have expanded this seminar to 6 hours to include a skills component that enhances the quality of the experience and preparations for clinicians managing legal and court issues.
