Law and Ethics Full-Day Workshop

Irrational Ethics with Curt Widhalm, LMFT

In this Law & Ethics update, we will review updates to ethical codes, the expected behavior from therapists, and research that demonstrates how these expectations don’t reflect how humans actually behave. In the face of the impossible task of remaining human while being a therapist, the focus of this workshop is to identify the protective factors that therapists can take to remain ethical with their clients, in their business practices, and in their approach to life. Through the use of case examples and experiential activities, this workshop will show how vulnerable we all are to ethical infractions and why knowing our vulnerabilities is necessary to remaining ethical.

Qualifies for 6 CEs in Law and Ethics from Therapy Reimagined CAMFT CEPA Provider #132270.

The PsychoSocial

Join all the #moderntherapists Thursday evening to connect before the conference, with drinks, bites, dancing, and a whole lot of networking. 

Please note that passes to this reception are included in VIP and Concierge tickets as well as most sponsorship packages.


We have designed the following tracks:

Track 1: Business and Technology

We are talking about how business and technology are transforming our profession. We may have courses that provide Continuing Education (looking at the intersection of business or technology and the clinical work, relevant laws and ethics, etc.) and/or courses that are non CE, providing state of the art information that #moderntherapists need to succeed.

Track 2: Ways of Being

Most conferences focus on what you do to or with clients — the tasks of therapy. But there is a large and growing body of literature on the importance of working on you as a clinician — your ways of being, rather than ways of doing. We have made it our mission to change that focus and provide challenging and empowering content that will transform how you are as a clinician. We will share innovative presentations that guide therapists on their personhood as a therapist in ways that improve outcomes for clients. 

Track 3: Ways of Doing

Many clients are not treated effectively by traditional therapy. As we increasingly understand the diversity of the people seeking treatment, we begin to realize that there is so much more to consider when we’re in the room. We’re presenting topics that blast through these gaps in our knowledge, looking at special populations, challenging treatment issues, and innovative techniques. We will be sharing the new stuff, the treatments that are not taught in graduate school, and the things that just plain work, even though they’re not done in the traditional ways. 

Track 4: Misfits, Outliers, Subversives, and Skeptics: Challenging the Status Quo

Systems are often created to sustain themselves. We believe this intent can lead to a toxic mess of complacency. Instead, we want to take the view of the skeptic, who is ready to turn psychotherapy or the profession as a whole on it’s head. Yes, we’re talking about the #moderntherapy upside down, folks. We’re not going to put any crazy theory up on the stage – we’re presenting well-researched, blow your mind, “why do we still believe the status quo any more” kind of shenanigans.
