Updated: Oct 19, 2020
On February 21st, Dr. Keith Cross spoke about Ethical, Legal and Relational Risks of Integrating Individual and Couple/Family Work. Keith is the owner and clinical director of the Prescott Relationship Center, PLLC. He holds a B.A. in psychology from A.S.U., and an M.S. and Ph.D. in Marriage and Family Therapy from Purdue University. In addition, Dr. Cross is a professor at Prescott College.
We were fortunate enough to have him present for our community of mental health professionals on a complex and foundational topic.
Dr. Cross reminded us of the differences between rules, ethics codes, and statutes governing our practice. We discussed identification of the ‘patient,’ limits of confidentiality, informed consent, and practicing within our ‘Scope of Practice.’ He provided a number of helpful resources including his own repertoire of forms, and materials from ‘The Trust.’ Dr. Keith Cross welcomes consultation and encourages connections amongst practitioners as a means of support and best practice.
We are grateful to have had our esteemed colleague join us for the sharing of knowledge and connection with our community.
