HOW WELL INFORMED ARE YOU ABOUT THE TWO KEY AREAS OF CONFIDENTIALITY AND INFORMED CONSENT?
Have you ever had a client say one of the following? 
 ‘He’s driving me nuts- I want to kill him’
‘This will be our last session- thanks for everything you’ve done ’
‘My daughter’s been watching ‘13 Reasons Why’ and I’m worried…’
‘My son is mixed up with drugs and I don’t know what to do’
If you have not actually experienced these – how will you react if/when you do?
You might want to ask yourself the following questions:
  • What is actually meant by “informed consent”?
  • Does your informed consent documentation cover all current legal issues?
  • When and how do you break confidentiality?
  • What happens if you are legally bound and don’t report?
  • Who is legally bound to report?
  • What are the implications for record keeping that ensure you are practising safely, ethically and legally?
This webinar will focus on these two areas that traditionally result in much questioning by practitioners.  While not seeking to provide answers to all of the above questions, it is hoped these webinars will stimulate discussion and prompt you, to look further and more widely for yourselves to apply to your practice.  Information will be provided on relevant and important resources to assist with this exploration.   
Members $25
Students $15
Non-members $40

For PACFA Registrants, the course counts as 1.5 hours of Category A CPD (Continuing Professional Development).
