Approval Details




COURSE 4D and COURSE 3D - Two Courses in Slideshow Format: 

Counselors are no longer in control of 'who' gets 'what' treatment and 'for how long'.  The payor's Care Managers now make those decisions in most behavioral health delivery systems because the reduction of health care cost is the new 'goal.'  For mental health and addiction counselors, working within a Managed Care contract is therefore ethically challenging.  

This course addresses the ETHICAL DILEMMAS and PRESSURES encountered on a daily basis when counselors work within a Managed Care delivery system.  But it helps to understand 'how managed care thinks' because this understanding provides a FRAMEWORK within which the counselor can work WITH the Care Manager instead of against. 

Ultimately, the approval or denial of care is based upon what you, the counselor, have DOCUMENTED in the client's treatment record.  When the Care Manager is pressing for details to qualify the individual for a certain Level of Care, how much must you divulge about your assessment of the client's diagnosis(es), his prognosis, his functional status, and his response to treatment?  How do you present this heretofore confidential information in a way that will be effective, and still within the bounds of Professional Ethics? 

These are popular courses in a PDF slideshow format which teach you how to Survive Managed Care - and to do it ETHICALLY. 


ETHICS COURSE 4B - This course presents NAMI'S new platform for ethically working with children, families and adult clients with Serious Mental Illnesses and Co-Occurring SUDs Disorders - in the community, in schools, in prison, and on death row.  Not all mental health and addiction diagnoses fall into the 'protected' category.  Learn which diagnoses do, and which do not.    

Professional and Legal Liability

Course 3C - 'Beyond the Yellow Legal Pad! Biopsychosocial Assessment of Children and Adolescents and Professional Risk - From Ethics to Practice and Into the Courtroom'.

 This course may be taken as either an Ethics course or an Assessment course.  The course speaks to the legal, ethical, and professional perils in the assessment of children and adolescents - particularly the inherent risks of 'assessing on the fly' without a structured format.  The course describes the critical errors that even the most experienced clinicians can make in the assessment and diagnosis of children and adolescents.  Understand the connection between these errors and the ETHICAL VIOLATIONS pertaining to  'Professional Competency,'  'Acting in the Best Interest of the Client,' and 'Scope of Practice.'

The course must be read online, but there are links to prototype Child and Adolescent Assessment forms at the end of Course 3C that can be saved and printed and modified by you for your own use.  


NOTE!  If you are licensed in Florida, we offer this course in two different approval categories - Ethics and Boundaries AND as a General Credit course (assessment and diagnosis of minors), under separate CE Broker approval numbers.  If you want to take Course 3C for Ethics and Boundaries in Florida, enroll in the Course 3C with the 'Florida' label in front of the title. 


COURSE 2D - 'The Ethics of Advanced Directives:  Assisting With Plans for End of Life Care'.  A research-based study which clarifies the significant differences in how people with varying critical illnesses and risk conditions approach the issue of End of Life Care.  The course offers guidance to mental health and addiction professionals in the ethical approaches to working with those with End of Life issues - children, parents, HIV-AIDS patients, cancer patients, stroke and burn victims, nursing facility residents, etc..
