February 23, 2022 - Ethical and Legal Issues in Mental Health Treatment

This webinar will examine the interesting ethical and legal issues of who should make decisions for Bea—A Woman with Schizoaffective Disorder and Dissociative Identity Disorder (AKA multiple personality disorder)—when she lacks decision-making capacity and whether a mental health advance directive would help her to receive the care she wants when she is delusional and unable to direct her care. Register for the webinar, watch our interdisciplinary panel of mental health, ethical, and legal experts discuss the case from multiple perspectives, and join the discussion with your comments and questions.

WVNEC would really appreciate your input and requests concerning educational opportunities.  What do you want to learn, discuss, or practice? Do you want lectures, case discussions, policy sharing?  Whatever it is, let us know, and we will do what we can to make distance learning/sharing as interesting and educational as possible.
