Participants will understand the 2-3 unique ethical components of working with and documenting work within complex family systems, minors including very young children and adolescents, and cases with high levels of client trauma. Participants will be able to name 3-4 best practices when it comes to documenting services and responding to documentation requests from families, outside providers, and court/legal systems. Participants will identify 2 additional ways to set supportive, ethical boundaries with clients in complex and high-trauma cases. All learning will allow clinicians to best serve individuals, couples, and families in ethical ways and assure compliant documentation that reduces risk of boundary challenges, misunderstanding, and negative client outcomes.
