Details: For many people working in human services, client lethality and mandatory reporting are some of the most difficult topics. In this workshop we will examine the applicable Washington State and Federal laws regarding mandatory reporting obligations with a specific focus on how these rules apply to both health care clinicians, and non-clinical staff. We will also discuss the boundaries and standards of clinician liability for client harm to self or others (the Tarasoff rule). Participants will gain increased ability to implement strategies to minimize risk and to limit liability to best support their veteran clients. This course is intended to meet ethics CEU requirements
