This is the first of FOUR L&E workshop modules we will be offering this year.

Kristin W. Roscoe, Esq., CAMFT Staff Attorney

This presentation details what to expect when a therapist is called to provide testimony at a deposition in their professional capacity.

Participants will gain a greater understanding of the legal and ethical obligations surrounding attendance at a deposition. Participants will also learn what the deposition itself might be like.

  1. Depositions in General
  2.  Notification Process for Depositions
  3. The Deposition Itself
  4.  Ethical Considerations

Participants will be able to

  1. Identify the two primary reasons why a therapist might be called to provide deposition testimony.
  2. Analyze the information in a deposition subpoena in order to convey that information to their patient(s).
  3. State the three individuals who may assert the psychotherapist patient privilege.
  4. Identify the seven ground rules common to most depositions.

This course meets the qualifications for 1.5 hours of continuing education credits for LMFTs, LCSWs, LPCCs and/or LEPs as required by the Board of Behavioral Sciences. Completion of ALL FOUR MODULES of the series earns a discount on liability insurance.  You will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the workshop.
