Course 4D and 3D - Two Ethics Courses in Slideshow Format  

Counselors are no longer in control of 'who' gets 'what' treatment and 'for how long'.  The payor's Care Manager now makes those decisions in most behavioral health delivery systems because the reduction of health care cost is the new 'goal.'  This course addresses the ETHICAL DILEMMAS and challenges encountered on a daily basis when counselors work within a Managed Care delivery system.  


Ethics Course 4B - This course presents NAMI'S 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.
