Clinical and Litigation Consultation

I offer clinical consultation in individual, agency, and group settings to mental health professionals regarding difficult cases, e.g., client suicides, supbpoenas for deposition and/or trials, etc. I have trained and supervised clinical staff in a myriad of settings, as well as provided clinical supervision toward licensure for LCSW.

I also offer consultation for mental health professionals in ethics, risk management, and prevention of client complaints/grievances. Mental health professionals who find themselves involved in legal proceedings of any type (e.g., depositions, testifying at trial, or defending professional malpractice lawsuits) may schedule a consultation with me for guidance and professional liability insurance generally reimburses you for the legal consult fee.

I have lectured around the country in the areas of mental health ethics and risk prevention, and effective collaboration with attorneys to help clients who have ongoing litigation issues.

I taught two classes in the Tulane School of Social Work graduate program for a number of years: “Family Violence: Theory and Therapy” and “Clinical Work with Children.” I also trained numerous groups of volunteers in crisis management and short-term counseling techniques in the context of family violence, loss and grief work.

Additionally, I taught workshops through the University of Texas School of Social Work’s Office of Professional Development: “Exploring the Grey Areas of Social Work Practice: An Interactive Workshop Applying Ethics Rules to Challenging Clinical Situations” and “Social Work Practice on the Interface: Developing Greater Competence and Comfort in the Legal Arena.” Additionally, she taught through St. Edward’s Office of Professional Education: “Ethics & Litigation: A Survival Guide.”

I have trained mental health professionals around the United States through PESI Behavioral Sciences, LLC with ethics workshops such as: “Legal and Ethical Issues in Mental Health Practice: Protecting Yourself and Your Clients.”
