Medical Errors for the Wise Therapist

CEUs 2

This course will look at the staggering numbers of errors made in the medical field, and then concentrate on errors made by therapists in the mental health field, including errors in documentation, dual relationships, handling suspected abuse, domestic violence, substance abuse, assessing mental illness, maintaining confidentiality, and assessing and treating suicide. Students will come away with their eyes open and a toolbox of solutions and preventative measures. Learning materials include videos, personal stories, fact sheets, and lists of do’s and don’ts.

The statistics are staggering. The number of people killed in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars pales in comparison to the number of people killed by preventable medical errors in this country every year. Don’t let even one of your patients become a statistic. Boards governing healthcare providers throughout the nation deserve credit for bringing this shocking information out of the shadows by requiring healthcare providers to be educated, aware, and prepared. The information in this will put you in a position to save lives.

Reviews

“Best law and rules training I have taken.”  ~Margaret Haynes, Leon, FL

"The course was very informative and well written. When I had questions about the materials the authors were immediately responsive and encouraging.

“I believe the course was extremely informative with a tremendous amount of information. My favorite part was the way things were broken down so simplistic it was easy to learn and understand.” ~Nathalie Viau, RCSWI, FL

Abusive and Controlling Men as Fathers

CEUs 5

This interesting yet disturbing course will cover everything therapists and child welfare workers need to know related to domestic violence in the family, from the points of view of the victim, who is trapped, the batterer, who feels justified, and the children, who suffer tremendously.

This course is written by award-winning domestic violence instructors Matt and Susan McMillan. Matt is a former police officer, prosecutor, and judge, and Susan is a licensed mental health counselor and jury trial consultant. They are founders of the first certified batterers intervention program in Florida and are considered pioneers in the field.

Students of this course will come away with a newfound understanding about the myths and realities of domestic violence, the impact on children created by the trauma of exposure, and solutions for healing the wounded family.

Although you may not wish to continue to see clients with these issues, when you finish this course, you will know what to look for, what to do, and what not to do when confronting these issues. You will also know where to refer clients and when to make those referrals as well as understanding the dynamics of these turbulent relationships from multiple angles. (5 CEU hours)

Aggression Control and Verbal De-Escalation

CEUs 2

Using video clips from the ground-breaking and controversial film “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” this course will make you laugh, think, and understand. You will learn how to reduce conflict with difficult or agitated clients in an inpatient or outpatient setting while protecting yourself, your staff members, and others. (2 CEU hours)

Ethics and Boundaries for Therapists

CEUs 3

Learn the myriad ways our colleagues have discovered that put their practices, their licenses, and their wealth at risk.

Ethics and Boundaries: How to Stay Out of Trouble will give clinicians the tools and information they need to recognize the ethical and legal boundaries of their profession and to steer clear of situations that invite complaints to the Board and malpractice suits by the lawyers.

Taught by award-winning instructors Matt and Susan McMillan. Matt is a former police officer, prosecutor, and judge, and Susan is a licensed mental health counselor with more than 25 years of experience and founder of the very first state-certified Batterers Intervention Program. This interactive and fun workshop will use case studies, humor, and group exercises to help you protect what you have worked hard to achieve.

Reviews:

“Probably the best online Ethics and Boundaries Course I have ever taken.”  ~Grace SL, LCSW, FL 

“Taken many courses with this provider previously – quality and professionalism are outstanding!” “The profession needs to keep up with YOU – there are many therapists that are truly uninformed and these courses need to be mandatory.”  ~Nancy Tetum, LCSW, Hillsborough Co, FL 

“Great content! Nothing authors could do to make it more effective.”  ~Susan Pierce, LCSW, Hillsborough Co, FL 

“I am a returning professional and I enjoy the Presenters and their commitment to excellence.”  ~Linda Cook, LMHC, Alachua Co, FL 

"Excellent course on a subject that most of us are very familiar with and presented in an interesting way."  ~Michele Rosenquist, LCSW, Sarasota, FL

Traumatic Soul Injury

CEUs 4

This course is vital for therapists and healthcare providers. As our field advances, we are learning more and more how trauma affects the brain and contributes to poor health, violent relationships, substance abuse, and the self-defeating behaviors many of our clients engage in. As a psychotherapist, assessor, or healthcare provider, you encounter individuals every day who are struggling to overcome trauma of some type or another. For many, alcohol and drugs are the method of coping. And while it is easy to be judgmental, understanding the horrific trauma endured by these individuals and the ultimate effect on their lives can make us much more understanding, much less judgmental, and much more equipped to render the help they need … and deserve.

Written by former lawyer and judge Matt McMillan and his psychotherapist wife Susan McMillan, this 3- hour course is a must-read for every therapist who is wondering how best to handle the delicate issues of psychotherapy and telehealth during the current pandemic or any time.  How, when and why should you transition to teletherapy, and what are the implications for the therapeutic relationship?  Does teletherapy work as well as in-person therapy and if so, for which disorders?  What does it mean to be HIPAA compliant during COVID-19?

This course answers all these questions and more.  You even get a collection of sample forms including a business association agreement, a teletherapy informed consent, and a comprehensive teletherapy checklist.  Plus you get a handy comparison chart of the different telehealth platforms with their respective prices.   This course is simply packed full of important legal, ethical, and practical information, with the typical personal touch and occasional humor you have come to expect from Matt and Susan McMillan.

~ William Aycrigg, LCSW, Pasco County, FL


“I am so grateful I found this CEU provider. The last time I had to take CEU courses, the information was at times hard to read and understand due to all the legal jargon. CEU Affordable really makes things easier by putting everything in laymen's terms and including information you didn't even know you needed to know. The McMillians, really make this a more enjoyable read and keeps me interested, unlike other CE providers, where I am fighting to stay away while reading the material. Thanks!”
