PMP103 Risk-Proofing Your Practice
Dates:At your convenience
Active Homestudy– After you register for the course you will be sent a course syllabus. Every week you are sent reading assignments and homework. Once a week you have the opportunity to call into the instructor and discuss the readings and homework. There is also a Blog available for all participants to discuss their work and ask questions.
Creating and maintaining a private professional practice is not for the faint of heart or the lazy. A successful practice requires a constant interaction between the art of psychotherapy, smart business practices, and operation within the laws and regulations that protect consumers. The buck always stops with the private practitioner whenever a problem arises.
The smart private practice practitioner does everything they can to provide quality services AND protect their business from legal and/or ethical complaints and suits. These actions alone go a long way to ensure that you will be less likely to face future practice difficulties.
The workshop includes:
* How we got into this situation
The history of MH law
* Identifying what risks are out there and how you can act to risk-proof yourself and your practice.
You can't protect yourself 100% but you can manage yourself in a way that limits incident, claim or suit occurrence.
