If it isn't in Writing, it Didn't Happen: Documentation to Protect Your Client, Yourself, and Your Organization

ID: 4113

Documentation is vital part of the professional's responsibility; however, it is often given insufficient attention. Writing progress notes, reports & letters requires the human service professional to consider many factors including the purpose of the communication, the recipient of the communication & the goal(s) of the writer. This workshop will focus best practices in professional documentation for social workers and other professionals with topics including, but not limited to: how to memorialize your assessment, prognosis & action plan in your documentation; how to appropriately convey these issues in communications to others; when to draft reports narrowly versus broadly; how to advocate & persuade on your client's behalf; how to convey objectivity; ethical & legal issues in documentation. *This workshop does not qualify for NBCC (National Board for Certified Counselors) clock hours in ethics.
