Why should you Attend: Behavioral health professionals - including mental health counselors, psychologists, social workers, psychiatrics, psychiatric nurses, and addictions counselors - face complex documentation challenges that raise both ethical and risk-management issues. When is it appropriate to be vague in a clinical note in order to protect clients? Should parents of minor clients have a right to access clinicians' records? How should practitioners respond to subpoenas that demand disclosure of records? Under what circumstances should clients have access to their own records? These and other documentation issues require skilled professional judgment.
