Using the Language of the Law to “Salt & Pepper” Your Treatment Records (6 hours)
Dave Jensen, J. D.
Many clinicians struggle with the content of their treatment records. They wonder should I write a lot? Should I write a little? What really needs to be in my records? In this six-hour course, CAMFT Staff Attorney, Dave Jensen, JD, will review fundamental aspects of recordkeeping.
This workshop is designed to help you:
- Explain the “building blocks” of the BBS’s law regarding recordkeeping.
- Identify mistakes made by colleagues in the area of recordkeeping.
- State the core subject areas of a treatment record.
- Compare/contrast recordkeeping requirements of the public and private mental health systems.
- Identify key legal terms that should “salt and pepper” your records, treatment or otherwise.
- Describe the “D-A-V-E Way” of keeping records.
*Lunch is included this year as an added bonus!*
