legalethicsEthical and Legal Protocols for Play Therapy

This recording of a two hour live tele-workshop is for play therapists in private practice AND for those who provide direction of services. We will cover in detail the most ethically and legally sound way to gain informed consent, maintain the clinical record and create consistent protocols for how to handle subpoenas, how to communicate with attorneys and guardians ad litem, how to prepare for court, how to handle video recording sessions and how to interact with parents/custodial guardians. These protocols are based on interviews and consultation with attorneys, licensed psychologists who serve as custody evaluators in Georgia and guardians ad litem in Georgia. The information in this workshop does NOT consist of or substitute for legal advice and all participants are responsible for consulting with their own legal representative and/or professional liability insurance carrier in the case legal advice is needed.
