Solving the Subpoena: The Art of Testifying
9:00 AM - 10:30 AM
Kristin Roscoe, Esq
This presentation is intended to provide an overview of subpoenas seeking your testimony and the ins and outs of actually testifying. In this 1 1/2 hour presentation, CAMFT Staff Attorney Kristin Roscoe will help you master subpoenas for testimony by reviewing their purpose, how to figure out what is asked of you, what the psychotherapist-patient privilege is, and what it looks like to actually be called to testify.
1. Participants will be able to identify the elements of a subpoena commanding appearance at a deposition and/or hearing.
2. Participants will be able to analyze a subpoena to determine who issued the subpoena, which patient the subpoena pertains to, what is requested, and steps to take when testifying.
3. Participants will be able to identify the three possible holders of the psychotherapist-patient privilege and the circumstances under which a therapist may not assert the privilege.
10:45 AM - 12:15 PM
Luke Matthew Martin, Esq
Not only is maintaining records a legal and ethical requirement or contractually required by managed care organizations, keeping records can benefit both the client and the therapist. Records keep track of the client’s treatment and progress, can help with care coordination, and may protect the therapist in potential legal, administrative or ethics proceedings. This presentation will review both California and HIPAA requirements on record keeping and answer essential questions such as what should be included in the record, how do I secure the record, how long do the records need to be kept, and who owns what in the event of a dispute.
1. Participants will be able to identify the three most common ways a record request can be handled
2. Explain how the local, state, and federal requirements differ on maintaining the security of a record
3. Explain how long a record must be kept for child and adult clients
4. Discuss the legal implications of giving out a copy of the record, treatment summary, or withholding the record
5. Recommend the best practices in maintain CEU records, supervision qualifications, and employee records
