Laurence Saputra and LeAnne Carr, both fully-credentialed LPC’s, join Kathleen Mills to discuss their thoughts on the intern advocacy group recently formed to affect changes to the official guidelines. Their intern experience is still fresh on their minds and that makes for an interesting and thoughtful discourse on the changes the intern association is attempting to put in place.
Which side of the fence do you come down on? Listen to this discussion and you’ll know!
The Move to BHEC is coming and the changes are happening very fast! New website look and content, and a new Penalty Matrix! That’s right, now you can not only know what the complaint is that’s been filed against you but you now have the ability to view the same Penalty Matrix that your Board will be using to determine your punishment.
The new Penalty Matrix is a part of the freshly overhauled Complaint Process so you’ll want to be familiar with that, as well as how to properly draft a complaint response letter. Might as well get started before the postman arrives!
If you’re not familiar with the complaint process and how it works then stop right now and go take this course first. Then come back.
In this course we’re going to talk about how to manage your attorney and how to manage the money you have available for an attorney should you receive a complaint. There’s a lot of work that you can…..well, just have a listen and then you’ll know!
- What You Really Need To Know About Attorneys
- Business Insurance Through Legal Eyes
- Pearce & Mongogna Q&A
- Therapist Testimony: When Confidentiality Goes Out The Window
- HIPAA Compliance
- Sunset Commission & Complaint Timeline
You know the different types of coverage and you’ve learned how to read a policy like an attorney. Now it’s time to talk about the application of those various policies; what’s necessary, what you need to make decisions about, and other such questions.
This course is also presented by our house attorneys, John Pearce and John Mongogna, from their legal-beagle point of view. They don’t sell insurance, they just deal with the problems after the fact, unless of course you’re sharp enough to do your homework before the fact. Dig your well before you need the water! Have a listen.
The name, “Tod Ferran”, is synonymous with “expert”. In this hour Tod is going to take us through a PCI Risk Assessment explain why it is so, so important that you own this process and protect yourself. We talk a lot about protecting client data, and that is what we’re doing, but when you boil it all down, if a problem shows up it won’t stop rolling downhill untill it’s squarely in your lap.
Tod is your friend! Have a listen.
Gone are the days when any old, free ethics class would suffice. The law now requires that a certain number of your CE units be what the law calls, “Texas Ethics”. In short, that means any ethics course that covers material in the LPC/LMFT/LSW Board Rules and Regulations, as well as that required by TX law, will be considered, “Texas Ethics”. But don’t take my word for it, listen to Kathleen define it for you.
We’re gonna miss all the free food and dancing bears…..but at least this CE Unit is another 2-fer. You get two discussions about Texas Ethics in this unit and (1) Texas Ethic credit for your troubles.
Did you know there are a dozen different types of liability insurance? Each one has a different, specific purpose and what you’ve been told about liability coverage may not be the only area of your practice in which you need to consider mitigating your risk.
Listen to Kathleen Mills as she discusses the different areas of liability with John Sutter, President of CoVerica Insurance, then you determine how much risk you want to hold, and how much you want to let the insurance people cover.
In another course we reviewed the different types of liability coverage. But at the root of each of those risk programs is a legal document, the policy. The policy contains everything upon which claims decisions will be made, and its not always a clear-cut process.
Your insurance agent should know this stuff like the back of his hand, and he should be able to explain it to you in 8th grade english. Our friend, and attorney, John Mongogna knows this stuff better than most insurance company attorneys! Have a listen as he dissects a standard policy, explains the different sections, what’s covered and how to determine what’s not covered.
Better you do your homework before you have a claim than find out, or have to pay someone like John, to find out after you have a claim.
