Navigating Guardianship as a Mental Health Provider in Ohio
Presented by Kathryn Redding, LPCC-S and Sarah Benson, LSW, LPC
Dynamics of guardianship are complex and often difficult to understand. The legalities and process of establishing guardianship can be confusing to the clinician as well as the clients and families we serve. This presentation will prepare mental health professionals to effectively and ethically work with adults who have legal guardians as well as minor children and their guardians.
At the completion of this training participants will:
- Identify the legal process of establishing guardianship in the state of Ohio
- Explain client rights once guardianship is established, including appeals process
- Summarize the differences between Power-Of-Attorney and Guardianship
- Describe ethical codes relevant to working with clients with guardians
- Determine how clinical information should be shared with parents of children and
guardians of adults
2.0 hours of continuing education credit will be available to those who complete the entire course presentation, take and pass the post-test (70% of questions, at a minimum, must be answered correctly), and complete a course evaluation.
