Life Coaching and Mental Health Counseling.
Lifemap is excited to present A Minor's Right to Choose, the next workshop in a series. During the 2017 legislative session, the Vermont legislative body passed Act 35, which allows any minor to self-initiate and give informed consent for counseling services. On January 1st, 2018, this law went into effect, challenging the mental health community to reconsider its definition of informed consent. All mental health providers must thoughtfully consider the many ethical dilemmas this new legislation presents. Informed consent laws have long protected patient and practitioner - but what now?
The workshop provides in-depth learning in the following five areas:
· Act 35 – it’s honorable intentions, drafts and the law as signed and enacted
· Clinical Mandates and Ethical dilemmas
· Best practices
· Critical changes for practice to be ethical
· Working ethically in schools and with special populations
6.5 CEU's (2 ethics credits) will be provided to Vermont psychologists, social workers and mental health counselors.
Your admission ticket includes hot breakfast, gourmet lunch and breaks, and workshop handouts.
