This training will explore compelling ethical and risk management challenges faced by administrators and supervisors of peer support services. Professor Frederic Reamer will discuss unique administrative and supervisory challenges related to boundary issues and dual relationships (e.g., hiring former clients), conflicts of interest, confidentiality, privileged communication, informed consent, client’s rights, termination of services, practitioners’ and clients’ use of technology, and impaired professionals. Dr. Reamer will focus on ethical standards related to supervision and strategies to prevent vicarious liability. He will discuss relevant ethical standards; statutes, regulations, and case law; national practice standards; documentation; supervision standards; and consultation protocols.
