Professional Liability Insurance: A Must For All Mental Health and Addiction Professionals in this Challenging Environment

Date – Thursday, August 25, 2022 from 3:00pm – 4:00pm ET (2CT/1MT/12PT)

Addiction counselors, affiliates, and licensed mental health professionals are facing new realities and challenges in this ever-changing environment, and there is a need to recognize the various liabilities associated with the delivery of services. This webinar is geared toward providing a basic explanation of malpractice insurance, more commonly referred to as “professional liability insurance.” Presenters will discuss the importance and necessity of maintaining coverage in the care, custody, and control of the professional providing services; provide an understanding of the different policy forms available on the market while simplifying the differences; discuss limits of liability and defense limits for lawsuits/claims and licensing board procedures; determine individualized comprehensive coverage designed for each policyholder, including eligibility, application completion, and commonly missed questions; and discuss in-house claims and risk management helpline resources, which are the first line of defense when facing common liability issues. Attendees will participate in a Q&A session and share personal experiences following the webinar.

The 2022 American Association for the Treatment of Opioid Dependence, Inc. (AATOD) Conference will be held in Baltimore, Maryland at the Baltimore Hilton Inner Harbor, October 30 – November 3, 2022. The 2022 conference theme is “The Power of Collaboration.”

Our intent is to educate and promote acceptance and integration of MAT options by patients, families, clinicians, the medical system, judicial systems, government, policymakers, social service administrations, and the general public. We will disseminate innovative, evidence-based initiatives and treatment techniques to better serve patients and providers, improve program development and administration, promote integration across the continuum of care, and enhance patient outcomes to assist communities in developing an effective response to this crisis.

People Like Me: Working with Vulnerable Populations Using an Integrated Model to Behavioral Health, presented by Sheryl Neverson, PhD, LCSW-C, LICSW

To say life is a struggle, especially in these uncertain times, would be an understatement. This struggle can switch from a slight burden to a crushing force that presses you to the bone. What makes these burdens even more debilitating is the feeling that we are meant to carry them alone, that seeking help to handle what life throws at us is a sign of weakness or failure on our part. This presentation will demonstrate how to address the needs of underserved populations using an Integrative Behavioral Health model.

This Year’s National Recovery Month Theme:
What is Recovery Month?
Now in its 32nd year, Recovery Month celebrates the gains made by those in recovery, just as we celebrate improvements made by those who are managing other health conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, asthma, and heart disease.
Each September, Recovery Month works to promote and support new evidence-based treatment and recovery practices, the emergence of a strong and proud recovery community, and the dedication of service providers and community members across the nation who make recovery in all its forms possible.

More events and trainings coming soon…
