Legal and ethical practice is critical to appropriate client care for the Christian psychologist, licensed mental health professional, and medical professional. As complaints against mental health providers increase, participants must be aware of the behaviors and issues most likely to prompt a complaint or lawsuit. Additionally, clinicians must be equipped to respond in wisdom should allegations of malpractice arise. In this workshop, participants will be prepared to analyze their practice for potential vulnerabilities, be introduced to effective strategies to prevent ethical lapses, and respond professionally to complaints.
