Whether you are an intern, seasoned practitioner, in a private practice or working for an agency you need to know what’s happening with Health Care Reform as its being implemented in Oregon and across the nation. Included will be a brief introduction to issues of the integration of Primary Care and Behavioral Healthcare.

Every counselor must be fully informed about legal and ethical issues including: abuse reporting; common OBLPCT complaints and concerns; client record keeping; what to do when you get requests for records; and ways to reduce counselor risk.

Attending this workshop will allow you to respond to the changing health care and legal climate from a place of knowledge instead of fear.
