Chapter 611 Release of Records and Professional Forms Workshop | Oct 23 | Frisco TX
October 23 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm CDT$295
Chapter 611 Release of Records and Professional Forms Workshop Synopsis: One of the things we've learned doing workshops is that once a student learns the basics, the way the State wants things done, the need for properly executed forms almost always makes its way to the forefront of thought and conversation. We can almost see the light-bulbs going off!
So, we've packaged our very popular course, Chapter 611 and The Release of Records with a newly minted course, Professional Counseling Forms, which includes the most popular forms needed to run a counseling practice in 2020. We've even made available some of the less frequently used forms, worksheets, and templates for you.
In the morning session we'll thoroughly cover the topic of the State of Texas' Chapter 611 which covers the Release of Records rules and regs. This will include a discussion of not only the proper workflow, but the proper forms to utilize in the process
We'll take a break for lunch which is provided during which time you can hang around and chat with your colleagues and Kathleen, or feel free to leave for the hour if you need to.
The afternoon session will be a deep-dive into the most commonly needed forms and will equip you to customize and brand a set of forms tailored specifically to your practice. And, yes, there will be a chocolate break.
You'll walk away with a hefty 3-ring binder full of guidelines, forms, checklists, and other helpful documents that Kathleen has assembled over the years and sharpened in her own practice.
Chapter 611 - Release of Records
In the morning session we'll do a 3-hour deep dive into the release of records, Texas Health & Safety Code Chapter 611, and review the proper protocol for this task.
Improperly executed release of records requests is the #1 cause of filed complaints in the State of Texas. It is very easy to become confused or assume that what makes good common sense is the correct way to do it, when in fact it may not be.
We will also discuss the limitations of your malpractice/liability should you be sued or receive a complaint regarding improper release of records protocol.
"I first Met Kathleen with PracticeMentors in an educational
CEU regarding Release of Records a few months ago.
Kathleen is knowledgeable, engaging, and totally up to date
on all things ethical! If you need any CEU’s,
Practice Mentors is the go-to for any and all your needs."
--Beth Boatman, LPC
"I would highly, highly recommend this course
to all my fellow counselors. I learned so many
things today that I didn't learn in school.
It is well worth your time!"
--Ashley Davis, LPC (Dallas, TX)

Lunch Is Included!
1PM - 4PM
In our workshops what we typically see is that once a student has taken the Chapter 611-Release of Records course or the 4 Cornerstones class, the light bulb goes on and we start getting questions about forms! Everything a mental health counselor does should be properly documented and so the need for legally approved forms to prevent complaints and other problems becomes quite clear.
That is why we've been planning this Forms class for well over a year now. We'll review all 12 of the more common forms used on a daily basis in the counselor's office environment, including:
"I've been to other workshops of Kathleen's and she is a fabulous instructor.
The handouts are an excellent resource.
I would recommend her workshops to everyone!"
--Roberta Jacobs, LPC
"Kathleen provides clear interpretation on material that can be
very confusing and intimidating. She's very open to using her own
experiences as examples and guidance for others.
Very beneficial, informational, and organized!"
Amy Glover, LPC (Denton, TX)
Takeaway Materials: You'll receive a 3-ring binder with hard-copies of the (12) most popular forms utilized in the mental health counseling office environment.
