Past: Join Elizabeth Irias, LMFT on August 12th at Genesis in Thousand Oaks for an informative CEU/CEH event, hosted by Genesis Programs. This presentation will provide a comprehensive overview of some of the liability issues both private practice and agency-based behavioral health providers face and may not even know it. So often, we counselors and therapists get so caught up returning phone calls and responding to client emergencies that our clinical documentation takes a backseat. The Risks We Don’t Talk About: Protecting Yourself and Your Practice is a synoptic presentation that is geared at increasing your understanding of the liability factors that come into play with your clinical documentation, and how to integrate Best Practice into your work. This continuing education event is also tailored to help you improve your documentation practices in order to keep you, your clients, and your practices safe. Additionally, this presentation offers clinicians insight about how integrating Medical Necessity into documentation practices can both improve the quality of care you provide and improve the authorizations granted by third-party payors like managed care companies.
