8:30 a.m. -4:15 p.m.
6 NBCC/SW CE HOURS  

 Leslie Phillips, LPC-S, NCC

INTRODUCTION: Documentation, the primary focus of clinical chart audits, is scrutinized by regulatory bodies. Among other things, chart audits assess for medical necessity to determine whether or not the treatment is necessary and/or effective. We learn to be mental health professionals, to engage clients, to understand the theoretical basis for treatment, to develop an understanding of mental illnesses, and to become advocates for our clients' well-being. Unfortunately, most of us are poorly trained in the administrative and regulatory aspects that impact our work. Our documention can start a legal and regulatory fire or extinguish it.  Therefore, join us as we determine if YOU are the fire starter of your practice? Or the Fire Fighter of your practice?


LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

Define medical necessity and learn how to document it effectively
Define concurrent and collaborative documentation and discuss the rationale of why it should be utilized with clients
Identify four or more important components of quality clinical documentation as they relate to Best Practice
Identify potential red flags in clinical documentation and the proper corrective measures

"Managing Suicidality in Clinical Practice"

Live, Interactive Webinar

April 23rd, 2021

8:30 a.m. -4:15 p.m.
6 NBCC/SW CE HOURS  


 Leslie Phillips, LPC-S, NCC

INTRODUCTION:
Introduction: Clinicians report that engaging with suicidal clients evokes the highest anxiety of any issue presented in session; yet many providers are under trained in navigating the assessment of these mental health issue. There is no doubt that suicide is one most fear-provoking situations a clinician may encounter. Unfortunately, when a client successfully completes suicide, clinicians struggle with their own healing, as it is complicated by litigation fears and colleague reactions. This workshop will provide participants with tools on how to assess, treat, and document suicidal episodes, as well as discuss our own self-care after the successful completion of a client suicide.


Learning Objectives Include:
 Define the various terms regarding suicidality
Identify the warning signs, risk factors, and protective factors of suicide
Discuss levels of care and possible treatment options and how to document
Identify concerns with clinical documentation and liability protection
Learn self-care practices for clinicians after client’s loss to suicide

"Harley Quinn and the Joker:
 “Sweetheart, Are We Co-Dependent or Dependent?”
April 30th, 2021
LIVE INTERACTIVE WEBINAR

6 NBCC/SW CE Hours 
FEE: $100.00


PRESENTER: 
Leslie Phillips, LPC-S, NCC


INTRODUCTION:
Therapists have worked with clients who feel trapped in a destructive relationship pattern (whether it’s with an addict, abuser, or from a personal perspective, even a manipulative friend).  It’s highly unusual for a client to come to a therapy session and request to be treated for codependency. Instead, they will likely report symptoms of anxiety, depression, addictions, or talk about their “relationship problems.” If we scratch the surface of someone suffering from any of these ailments, we will most likely find codependent, dependent and maladaptive behaviors. Join us as we learn more about codependency and dependent personality disorder.  

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
 
Define codependency and Dependent Personality Disorder, distinguishing between the two 
 Identify the 3 types of “codependents” and family of origin roles 
Learn the “codependent and narcissistic” dance of attraction 
Learn how to create treatment plan goals for Dependent Personality Disorder​

​REFUND, CANCELLATION, CERTIFICATE, POSTPONEMENT,  REFUSAL OF SERVICE , ACCOMMODATIONS POLICIES: 

Refunds: If a refund is requested by the participant, a partial refund, minus a $25.00 adminstrative fee will be provided regardless of the time period of when the request is received for all seminars in which the registration fee charged was $70 or more. If the seminar was under $70, customers will be given a refund of 50% of what was charged/paid. Additionally, a credit card fee will be assessed to all refunds, to cover the cost of PayPal and/or Stripe processing charges on credit cards (these fees usually range from 2.2% – 2.9% of the total conference cost depending on PayPal and or Stripe's current algorithm utilized at the time of payment). All cancellations must be in writing, thus emailed to leslie@daretodreamlife.com is preferred. No refunds will be issued if received less than 2 weeks of the event.  Please note if a participant fails to contact us as well as fails to appear for the seminar, no refunds will be issued, nor will attendance of another seminar be allowed. Regarding live webinar events, we do not provide refunds due to the following: (1) Attendee technology problems: It is the responsibility of the webinar attendee to test their computer setup prior to the start of the webinar. If a technical failure at your location (work, home, other locations of your preference) prevents access to the live webinar, you are not eligible for a refund. If the technical problem is due to our error, we will consider issuing a refund.  (2) Attendee email issues: Refunds will not be issued in cases where an attendee did not receive the webinar login instruction email due to issues like restricted emails, bounced emails, or any other system issues. It is the attendee’s responsibility to contact us if they don’t receive the required login information at least 24 hours prior to the start time of the webinar. (3) No shows: Attendees who do not participate in the live webinar will not be entitled to a refund.

Cancellations:  If Leslie Phillips Seminars® cancels a seminar, a full refund will be given. Leslie Phillips Seminars® reserves the right to cancel any seminar due to low enrollment. 

Postponements: At times, postponing a seminar may be unavoidable (such as illness of a presenter, family tragedy, etc). If a seminar is postponed, all registered will have the option to attend the seminar on the newly scheduled date, or have their registration transferred to another seminar of their choice within the next 6 months. No refunds will be given. If a seminar is not attended within that 6 month period, attendance of another seminar is forfeited. 

Certificates: If a customer loses, misplaces, or otherwise cannot find their certificate that was originally provided which includes incidents of email returns or non-responses due to supplying us with an incorrect email address at the time of registration and attendance of webinars, Leslie Phillips Seminars® will provide an additional certificate electronically with an administrative charge of $30.00.

ADDITIONAL RESEARCH FEE: While we understand that mishaps occur, unfortunately we have received an increase in customers contacting us, stating they know they attended a seminar, but do not know the date or the title of the seminar. In this instance, they are requesting staff to look through records for large spans of time, often including an entire year or more, to determine their attendance and then create and send certificates. This creates additional time for staff, outside of the norm, when a customer does not know the date and/or title of the seminar. Therefore, an additional fee of $20.00 will be charged in cases such as these and will be due BEFORE staff begin this review process.  
2.   If a customer requests a certificate to be mailed through the United States Postal Service, Leslie Phillips Seminars ® will mail the certificate with an administrative charge of $40.00. Customers may utilize the buy it now option on our website at www.daretodreamlife.com or contact leslie@daretodreamlife.com to pay by check.
​Certificates: It is the policy and procedure of Leslie Phillips Seminars® to provide our customers with their certificate at the end of each seminar.  Because we provide this in person, at the conclusion of all seminars, the following policy is adhered to:
1.     If a customer loses, misplaces, fails to get their certificate before leaving for the day, or otherwise cannot find their certificate that was originally provided at their seminar, Leslie Phillips Seminars® will provide an additional certificate electronically with an administrative charge of $30.00.  Customers may utilize the buy it now option on our website at www.daretodreamlife.com or contact leslie@daretodreamlife.com to pay by check.
