Dave Jensen has been a Staff Attorney with CAMFT since April, 2002. As an attorney with CAMFT, Dave consults with its members regarding their legal and ethical dilemmas and obligations, and he is a regular contributor to The Therapist magazine.
Course Description: Whether they realize it or not, psychotherapists are creators of legal and ethical outcomes, whether for good or for ill. In this workshop, Dave Jensen will instruct attendees on the ten principles that can be applied to help psychotherapists create legal and ethical outcomes, not illegal or unethical ones. This workshop will also spend a significant amount of time reviewing laws and cases concerning patients who are dangerous to third parties, and it will review in detail an actual BBS administrative law proceeding.
