Ethical Principles in the Practice of Tennessee Mental Health Professionals is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Sep 26, 2018 at Millennium Maxwell House Nashville, Nashville, Tennessee, United States of America. Course Overview: Many continuing education ethics programs are generic in nature. Many continuing education ethics programs stress risk management strategies to the detriment of the attendees, especially if an attorney presenter is involved. This program is different. Rather than avoiding clinical issues, this program explores the manner by which clinical and ethical issues affect the everyday practice of the mental health professional in Tennessee. This unique blend of clinical and ethical concerns allows for a more meaningful understanding and interpretation of the rules that govern mental health practice. These goals are reached through the experience and the interactive style of the presenter, Allan M. Tepper, J.D., Psy.D. Different from other individuals who possess joint degrees in psychology and law, Dr. Tepper actually maintains an active psychology practice and an active law practice. He functions as a clinician, and he represents mental health professionals who experience legal difficulties. In this regard, Dr. Tepper brings an extremely unique perspective to the practical understanding of ethics. These goals also are reached through the manual utilized in the seminar. The manual materials are not generic in nature. All of the written materials are state specific to Tennessee. Course Objectives: • Specify state and administrative laws that impact clinical practice. • Determine the ethical and legal principle of informed consent. • Determine the notes, documents, reports, forms, and clinical data that constitute the record • Evaluate current record-keeping practices. • Analyze how to comply with third-party requests for records. • Establish the consent necessary to treat minors and release records of minors.
