    Border Wars: Jurisdictional Challenges for Psychotherapists Providing Telehealth with David Jensen, JD

    Saturday, March 16, 2019


    9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  

    French Hospital Copeland Education Pavillion

    3rd Floor Auditorium

    1911 Johnson Avenue

    San Luis Obispo, CA

    Course Description:

    The potential of telehealth to change the health care milieu is unquestionable. However, it also can create some complex jurisdictional issues for unwitting psychotherapists as they practice, whether as a psychotherapist or as a “life coach.” In this six-hour class, Dave Jensen, J.D. will review the legal concept of personal jurisdiction for purposes of civil lawsuits, criminal actions, and licensing board complaints. He will also review leading cases in this area that will help psychotherapists decide what to do when their patients travel out-of-state on vacation or for work, move to other states after therapy has commenced, or present for therapy in California from other states.

    This workshop is designed to help you:

    1. Describe the legal concept of jurisdiction as applied in lawsuits between former patients and health care providers.
    2. Describe the legal concept of jurisdiction as applied in cases where a state is accusing a health care provider of practicing without a license in that state.
    3. Describe the legal concept of jurisdiction as applied in licensing board proceedings.
    4. Apply the “follow-up care” doctrine to situations involving the travel of patients to other jurisdictions. 
    5. Identify three activities that create jurisdictional traps for psychotherapists, whether they are doing psychotherapy or life coaching.


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

    A Gestalt Approach to Resolving Ambivalence and Inner Splits Impacting Anxiety and Depression with Ken Hutchinson

    Program will include A Brief Overview of Gestalt Therapy, including 

    • History
    • Theory (Awareness, Contact, Here-and Now, Process vs Content Focus, Polarities, Embodiment, Field Theory, Holism, Figure/Ground, Self, Experience                               Cycle)
    • Techniques Do Not Define Gestalt Therapy, Theory Does
    • Exploring the nature of Polarities

    Objectives:

    1. Participants will differentiate “ambivalence” and “splits” from other processes that impact anxiety and depression.
    2. Participants will discuss this understanding in group through work in dyads as therapist or client.
    3. Participants will demonstrate processes in dyads enlivening the depth of embodiment of each polarity that results in movement toward closure.
