Ethics for Behavioral and Mental Health Professionals

Everyone in the social services field is required to have hours of continuing education in Ethics for licensing and certification purposes. When we begin to think of this requirement our thoughts turn to “Sometimes I find it ethics boring, sometimes I find ethics workshops informational, and sometimes I find the workshop presents troubling information.” This course will teach those in the social services field how to protect themselves from complaints, what to do with a complaint, and what is new in the social service field concerning ethics that they need to know about.
