Many clinicians have a firm understanding of the value of clinical work that actively considers the cultural context. However, the specific legal and ethical standards underlying such culturally sound clinical work are often less well understood. In this 3 hour workshop we will examine the applicable ethical and legal standards regarding working within the cultural context. Specific focus will be on apply these standards to our mandatory reporting obligations and to working with a range of diverse clients.
Participants will gain increased ability to implement strategies to minimize risk and to limit liability to best support their clients and patients.
