About the Workshop:

Say good-bye to dull legal and ethical trainings and get our annual legal and ethical CE training in a dynamic, entertaining game show format! This presentation grew out of a recognition that most mental health professionals do not need another lecture on typical legal and ethical topics. What has been needed is a fun, stimulating way to review and learn from what they already know. Participants are broken into teams and each team has an electronic remote that sends the team’s answers to legal and ethical questions presented. Answers from teams are graphed, posted and discussed. A computer keeps scores for all to see. Questions are presented in various formats including Jeopardy-style where categories are chosen and questions get harder as point values increase. Management of some of the most perplexing legal and ethical quandaries will be explored. Topics include child abuse, confidentiality, dual relations, suicide, duty to warn, elder abuse, HIPAA, and more. The material is applicable to all disciplines, practices and states.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of this program, participants will be able to:
1. Explain legal and ethical requirements surrounding informed consent.
2. Describe numerous situations where confidentiality should and should not be broken.
3. List the differences between child abuse, rape, and statutory rape and mental health professional’s duty relative to each under the codes and laws.
4. Describe specific instances when duty to warn is mandated and the complications presented by specific codes and laws.
5. Assess the pitfalls and complexities posed by dual relationships.
6. Describe what constitutes elders abuse and professionals duties regarding reporting.


This presentation is intended for psychologists, other licensed mental health providers, and graduate students of psychology. Seating is limited, so register early!
