For many therapists, the notice of having to work within the legal system can bring a level of concern, anxiety, and even panic. This program will help educate all levels of practitioners on how mental health professionals and attorneys can work collaboratively to facilitate the best outcome for all involved parties. A scenario-based presentation will provide insight into the ethics, and standards of practice from both sides. We welcome back 2 very experienced presenters, Susan Myres and Renata Nero.
