New Course!

A thorough understanding of current laws and ethical standards pertaining to psychotherapy is critical for mental health professionals. This text presents comprehensive and up-to-date information specific to recently enacted legislation as it pertains to mental health professionals in California. It also includes an overview of issues such as privilege and confidentiality, danger to self or others, treatment of minors, mandated responsibilities, telehealth, health insurance and private practice, and other legal issues related to mental health practice. Recent changes in the law are highlighted.


Please note - the text for this course is extensive, so it may take up to a minute or more to download if you have a slow internet connection.

The text contains over 300 pages, so we recommend purchasing the printed book rather than printing it yourself.
