    Workshop Description:

    This presentation will explore the developmental significance of trauma. It considers single incidents, multiple incidents, and chronic severe trauma in earl childhood as forces shaping development through adolescence into adulthood. It offers the rational for focusing on Post Traumatic Stress Development (rather than Disorder). It includes an appreciation of how an ecological perspective on human develop helps to provide a better understanding of the developmental impact of trauma than narrow clinical perspectives. It utilizes research employing the Adverse Childhood Experiences Scale as an illustration of this understanding.

    The Road to Compliance:  HIPAA Compliance for Mental Health Counselors

    Workshop Description: When asked, almost everyone will say, “Yes, I’m HIPAA compliant!”  But are you?  Are you on the road to HIPAA compliance?  Have you done your required security risk assessment?  Have you done due your required diligence on your business associates?  Have you customized your training program to your practice?  Mental health protected health information (PHI) is considered one of the most sensitive types of PHI; it is incumbent upon counselors to understand how to protect the privacy and security of their client PHI, which goes well beyond just keeping confidentiality within the counseling relationship. In this workshop, we will explore the most commonly misunderstood HIPAA requirements, and outline a road for compliance for your practice.  By the end of this workshop, you will understand the major components of HIPAA compliance and be able to evaluate your own practice to see if your practice or organization can pass regulatory scrutiny.  Not a HIPAA covered entity? Recent legal actions have used HIPAA as the standard of care for privacy and security of PHI; you will want to know this information for best practice in protecting your clients’ private information.
