    Recorded: Law & Ethics of Telehealth: WA Telemedicine Training
    12/01/2020 - 06/30/2021 - All Day

    The recent worldwide public health emergency is sending unprecedented numbers of healthcare
    providers online. While new technology can provide us with powerful tools to continue to connect and
    communicate in this changing environment, many mental health professionals are finding themselves
    less than fully prepared to implement telehealth services. We have confirmed with the Department of Health that this training meets the requirement of SB 6061 provided you pass the test of comprehension.

    Monthly virtual happy hours are a great way to connect with other professionals. These are informal FREE events for any mental health professional! We hope to see you there. Please feel free to invite your friends and colleagues!

    ONE 4 ME Mindful Practice Group for Mental Health Providers (FREE)
    01/13/2021 - 02/24/2021 - 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

    Your presence is welcomed whether you’re a seasoned meditator or beginner who’s curious about cultivating mindfulness in daily life. We’ll begin each session with mindful movement (slow, gentle stretching and movement) followed with a guided meditation practice (sitting, walking or lying down) and an opportunity to share and connect with others who are also cultivating peace of mind and a more joyful heart.

    By design the group ends at 1:50 creating space for a gentle transition from the inner landscape of being with oneself to the well-known outer landscape of doing for others at work, home and beyond.

    When: Wednesdays from 1-1:50 PM on Zoom (signing up doesn’t commit you to attending them all, but you will receive the invitation each week unless you notify us otherwise)

    So, Your Client Has an Emotional Support Animal…Law & Ethics of Writing ESA Letters
    03/05/2021 - 9:00 am - 10:00 am

    Clinicians are frequently asked by clients to write service animal support letters. Are we required to write these letters? Are we allowed to write these letters? Do we face exposure to liability if we write these letters? This 1 hour workshop will answer these questions. We will highlight the key legal distinctions between service animals, support animals, therapy animals, and pets. We will then discuss the legal and ethical implications of providing clients with evaluation and accommodation letters. After this workshop participants will be able to implement strategies to minimize professional liability while maximizing clinical effectiveness and support to clients with animal support. This course is intended to meet law and ethics continuing education requirements.
