LEGAL AND ETHICAL ISSUES: THANK YOU FOR SUPERVISING LEGALLY
David Jensen, JD
Supervision is vital to the profession of marriage and family therapy, and there are many laws that pertain to the subject, including, but not limited to: liability concerns, consumer protection issues and the unique requirements of licensing boards. In this workshop, David Jensen, J.D., will review the laws pertaining to supervision and liability issues, and the nuts and bolts of the supervisory process.
This workshop is designed to help you:
- Assess liability issues arising within the supervisory relationship.
- Identify which unlicensed practitioners your license allows you to supervise.
- Discuss the importance of the issue of competence and how it relates to the subject of supervision.
- Apply the BBS rules regarding supervision to your particular circumstance.
This is a 6 CEU course and can be applied to both supervision and regular law and ethics requirements of the California Board of Behavioral Sciences.
