Interested in increasing your knowledge about specific mental health topics? The Training Institute at BWCC provides continuing education training on a variety of exciting topics to local professionals and interested individuals.
This workshop offers clinicians the strategies to understand the different stages of changes, appropriately assess motivation vs. confidence, and identify and handle resistance. Clinicians will benefit from a hands-on approach to working with assessment tools, engage in group exercises, and observe videos that demonstrate the tools that will be presented throughout the course.
The workshop will focus on what you should do when involved in litigation as a witness, documentation, the role of the mental health provider in the court system, responding to subpoenas, and testifying at depositions and in court. The session will review the laws and rules applicable to court proceedings, including an explanation of the different types of subpoenas, the requirements for requesting mental health information, the timeframes required for notifying a witness to appear for a deposition or for court, and/or when documents are to be produced.
