Those who have attended David Jensen’s workshops in past years have been unanimous in praise of his thoroughness in exploring our complex legal and ethical considerations, while entertaining us with his humor and anecdotal material.


Course Description: 

David Jensen, JD, will review the four fundamentals of the psychotherapy profession.  He will also address the laws pertaining to the standard of care, especially with regards to suicidal patients and obtaining continuation units, including reviewing actual legal cases involving these issues.

Learning Objectives:

1.  Identify the four fundamentals of practicing legally, ethically, safely and confidently.

2.  Develop a working knowledge of the standard of care and how it relates to psychotherapists.

3.  Understand what does and does not count as continuing education credit.

This workshop satisfies the Law and Ethics course requirement of six (6) continuing education units mandated by the BBS for LMFTs, LPCCs, LCSWs and LEPs for each license renewal cycle. Participants will be updated on changes in the law that affect professional practice.
