Webinar Description

Since the landmark Tarasoff decision of the 1970s, mental health providers have faced difficult decisions regarding their duty to warn and protect, given the unclear direction between law, legal precedent, and ethical standards.  This presentation presents a review of important decision-making principles regarding the duty to warn.

Learning Objectives

After completing the webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • Discuss the differing expectations between ethical and legal standards;
  • Identify specific statutory and ethical language to understand when a duty to warn or protect is necessary; and
  • Demonstrate applied knowledge using provided case examples.
