    What Does "Standard of Care" Mean to You?

    presented by David Jensen, JD, CAMFT Attorney

    (6 CE Hours)


    Friday October 5, 2018

    9:00 am - 5:00 pm 



    Course Description:

    David Jensen, J.D., will review the laws pertaining to the standard of care, especially with regards to suicidal patients. The ultimate educational goal for this workshop is for attendees to become more nuanced in being able to describe the clinical activities that frame the legal concept of the standard of care. This course will draw heavily on actual cases involving the standard of care to explore the decision-making of colleagues who have run afoul of the standard of care, one way or another. 

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Identify the three core activities of the standard of care.

    2. Identify the three core attributes of a competent psychotherapist.

    3. Discuss the importance of treatment planning to the standard of care.

    4. Identify at least six mistakes Dr. Manov made in his treatment of Mr. Perez.

    The topic of sex can be a “dirty little secret” in couple therapy especially when therapists don’t bring it up. This presentation will focus on how when and how to broach the topic of sex to assist couples in reducing shame about the conversation and in having more explicit discussions about their sexual concerns and desires. Issues such as how to approach low sexual desire or sexual dysfunction, whether sexual fantasies have a place in relationships, and how to get couples talking about what they like sexually are examples of the kind of discussion that will take place.

    Participants will understand the definition of sexuality according to the World Association of Sexual Health and consider that couple sexuality is informed by the broader culture and the culture of their youth. Finally, we’ll examine how personal values assist in the construction of a positive sexuality.

    Learning Objectives
    • Increase therapist comfort (hard to measure comfort) in talking about sex and sexuality in the therapeutic setting by recognizing how to elicit the presenting sexual problem , as evidenced by knowledge of 2 appropriate clinical interventions
    • Describe three components of sexual health including the ability to talk about sex and sexuality; identify cultural concerns; understand consent; discuss masturbation and fantasy.
    • Assist clients in identifying? 2-3 individual and shared values as it applies to partner-relational sex.
