“An Overview of Progress Notes as They Are Utilized in Documenting Mental Health Treatment Records” 

Objectives:

  1. Describe 3 or more specific functions/purposes for progress notes.
  2. Explain how progress notes are relevant to the requirements expressed in California Business and Professions Code, 4982. (v), which requires therapists to “keep records consistent with sound clinical judgment, the standards of the profession, and the nature of the services rendered.”
  3. Explain how progress notes are relevant to the ethical standards concerning client/patient records, as expressed in §5.3 of the CAMFT Code of Ethics. 
  4. Explain the difference between “progress notes” and “psychotherapy notes” as they are defined by HIPAA.

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.
