    Reclaiming Your Reputation: Law and Ethics Tips for Promoting and Protecting Your Brand in the Age of Yelp and Google Reviews" Friday, June 16, 2023 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

    Negative online reviews often leave MFTs feeling stuck. Responding to such reviews may breach patients confidentiality but ignoring them can leave bad impressions for prospective patients. Developing an appropriate response to negative reviews can be even more pressing when the reviews include false information or defamatory accusations.

    Join Bradley Jordan Muldrow, JD for an enlightening discussion about how MFTs can successfully manage their brands by effectively responding to negative online reviews and, in appropriate circumstances,  asking patients to leave reviews or provide testimonials.  The workshop will address the online review removal protocols for two of the most popular online review websites, alternative methods for responding to negative online reviews, and ethical issues to consider prior to soliciting patient reviews and testimonials.  

    Educational Goals:

    Participants will recognize how the ethics code has changed to allow MFTs to solicit testimonials (and impliedly reviews) from certain patients, in appropriate circumstances.

    Participants will understand the concept of “undue influence” and how that understanding should shape their approaches to soliciting testimonials and reviews.

    Participants will understand important issues they should consider prior to using anonymous testimonials in advertisements, etc.


    1. Participants will be able to identify five potential methods for responding to improper / unlawful reviews left on review websites. 
    2. Participants will be able to state which patients they may solicit testimonials (and impliedly reviews) from in appropriate circumstances. 
    3. Participants will be able to state five issues MFTs should consider prior to soliciting testimonials or reviews from minors who have consented to their own treatment.

    Staff Attorney As a CAMFT staff attorney, Bradley J. Muldrow, Esq. takes member phone calls regarding law and ethics issues and contributes articles on those subjects to CAMFT's publication, the Therapist. Prior to joining CAMFT’s legal team, Brad worked on litigation and regulatory matters as an attorney for San Diego Gas & Electric Company.

He has also served as a board member for the Earl B. Gilliam Bar Foundation, a San Diego-based nonprofit. 

    How a Professional Will Can Help Therapists Prepare Their Clients for the Unexpected    Alain Montgomery, Esq. Description 1.5 CEs  2:45 - 4:15 PM

    Therapists have an ethical obligation to maintain practices that facilitate continuity of care for their clients. A Professional Will is a comprehensive document that can be used to ensure clients have access to the information and resources they need in the event of unforeseen circumstances. During this one and a half hour presentation, CAMFT Staff Attorney Alain Montgomery, will review key legal and ethical considerations for therapists to consider in preparing a Professional Will.

    Educational Goals

    To help workshop participants understand how a professional will fulfills ethical obligations to facilitate continuity of care for clients under certain circumstances.

    To ensure workshop participants know how a professional will can be utilized to preserve client records in compliance with applicable legal standards.

    To explain the framework of a professional will so workshop participants can identify the pieces of information they need to create a comprehensive and effective document to serve as their professional will.


    Participants will be able to:
    1. Describe the applicable CAMFT Ethical Standard(s) that discuss professional wills.
    2. Illustrate how a professional will accomplishes the effective legal, ethical, and seamless transition of care when a therapist is unable to undertake that task due to incapacity or death.
    3. Identify and describe the key elements of a professional will.

    Presenter: California Association of marriage and family therapists

    Course meets the qualifications for 3 hours of continuing education credit for LMFTs, LCSWs, LPCCs and/or LEPs as required by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences.  Registrants must attend the full 3 hours to receive CEs..

    If you are a member of #therapistsofinstagram or considering whether to incorporate social media into your advertising strategy, you should be considering the laws and ethics of putting yourself out there. Social media advertising can be a great way to connect with new and current patients, but it also opens to doors to ethically dubious interactions when a non-patient slides into your DMs in crisis or a patient publicly posts clinically-relevant material to your personal Facebook page. In this three-hour presentation, CAMFT staff attorney Kristin Roscoe will help you unpack what legal and ethical considerations therapists should take into account when advertising services via social media and how to address some of those stickier virtual interactions.

    Educational Goals 

    Participants will gain a greater understanding of the legal and ethical considerations to take into account when a therapist engages with social media – whether professionally or in their personal capacity.


    1. Participants will be able to:

    - Identify when dual relationships become unethical and steps to avoid that eventuality

    -  Analyze the informed consent process to determine whether addressing social media interactions would be appropriate to include in that documentation

    - Identify the circumstances under which a therapist could share information on social media without breaching patient confidentiality

    Kristin W. Roscoe, Esq., CAMFT Staff Attorney, takes CAMFT member phone calls regarding law and ethics issues and contributes articles on those subjects to The Therapist. Before joining CAMFT’s legal team, Kristin represented healthcare systems and professionals in professional negligence litigation at La Follette, Johnson, DeHaas, Fesler & Ames. Since entering the legal profession, Kristin has worked in various capacities presenting to and advocating on behalf of her clients both in and outside of the courtroom. Kristin received her B.A. from The College of Wooster in 2006 and graduated from The American University Washington College of Law with her J.D. in 2012.
