When a couple being treated decides to no longer be a couple, issues of confidentiality, release of treatment related information, contact from the court or attorneys, and welfare of children add further to the complexity of practicing within legal and ethical boundaries. This session will present a step by step approach to minimize the risk of having to face such dilemmas, and what to do if it can't be avoided. Participants will learn how to discern the true reason why an individual or couple is seeking help, what to do if you receive a subpoena or court order for records, and how to work cooperatively with the court system while maintaining best practice standards with your clients.
