Law, Ethics and Standards of Care in Behavioral Health

Behavioral health professionals must understand and manage the potential legal and ethical risks that arise in the course of their practice to protect their clients, their organizations, and themselves. This course provides an overview of several important legal and ethical issues that psychologists, social workers, counselors, and other behavioral health professionals may face. It is designed to heighten clinicians’ general awareness of legal and ethical concerns. It is not offered as legal advice for any individual provider or specific situation. This training will help you distinguish between legal, ethical, and standard of care issues. It is designed to serve as a guide to help you understand the law and make ethical decisions in your work, as well as develop risk-management and compliance strategies to help you avoid disciplinary actions and claims of malpractice. You will also learn about informed consent, confidentiality, and privacy concerns. A variety of case vignettes and interactive exercises will give you opportunities to apply and deepen your knowledge of these critical topics. Taking this course can help you prepare for and recognize legal and ethical concerns. However, you will also need to familiarize yourself with the specific laws, ethical codes, organizational policies, and standards of care that apply to your practice. Professional organizations, state licensing boards, and attorneys familiar with behavioral health law can help you access information relevant to your work.
