Developing A Professional Will For Your Practice: Legal and Ethical Considerations

What would happen to your clients if you were unable to go to work tomorrow? All therapists have an ethical requirement to have plans in place in the event that we are unable to practice or be there for our clients. This webinar includes everything you need to know about creating a professional will as a therapist, including ethical requirements, what to include, choosing an executor, and disclosing to your clients.

This 60-minute presentation is one continuing education credit, which counts as an ethics credit. It is pre-recorded for home study, to be completed at your own pace.


$25 for the course and continuing education certificate. There are no additional fees for this course. The fee offers you lifetime access to the self-guided home study course. Because you maintain lifetime access to the learning materials, no refunds are offered for this course.
