The Sudden End of Your Psychotherapy Practice: Ethical and Practical Considerations, with

Ernest Braasch, MD
and Heather Craige, MSW

Program Description 

The end will come one day for each of us. Planning for the possibility of a sudden illness or death while actively in practice is essential. Planning protects your patients and family, while it prepares you to make a thoughtful and orderly transition out of practice. 

This program will cover three areas: examples of planned versus chaotic ways of terminating a psychotherapy practice, practical guidance on preparing a professional will, and an introduction to PCC's new Colleague Assistance Program. This program provides 2 hours of CE/CME credits in ethics.
