You are working in a community mental health center. The director wants to do a power point presentation for an all staff training meeting providing the staff an overview of legal and ethical issues in mental health treatment.

There have been problems with some clients complaining. Client’s rights advocates report there have been many complaints filed in the agency about confidentiality, client dignity,  reporting child abuse, and duty to warn issues. They need to have clarification from staff in order to handle these issues appropriately.

Group Portion:

Each group should agree on one of the following topics to present to the director for his presentation to the staff meeting: confidentiality, client dignity,  reporting child abuse, and duty to warn issues. The group’s presentation should be 12-15 slides with notes include the following:

  • a description and overview of the topic chosen, including why it is important to clients and the legal and ethical implications.
  • a case scenario based on the client population that would illustrate the topic chosen and place it a context for the staff to understand.
  • an explanation on how the agency staff should assist each other and clients in becoming more aware of the chosen topic and avoid issues related to the topic

Be sure to cite your sources using APA style and include a reference list at the end.

Individual Portion:

Each team member must select one the topics (confidentiality, client dignity, reporting child abuse, and duty to warn issues) other than the subject of the group presentation, and write 1-2 page summary of the information requested for the group portion above.   Be sure to cite your sources using APA style and include a reference list at the end.
