Welcome to CEU By Net's 'Ethics' Page! We Now Offer Four Unique, Non-Traditional Ethics Continuing Education Courses Here On This Website, Approved by NBCC, EACC, and Multiple State Boards for Mental Health and Addiction Professionals.
All five of these Ethics courses are geared to the PRACTICAL ethics-related treatment activities and dilemmas of today's Social Workers, LMFTs and MFTs, LEPs, LPCs and other mental health counselors, Pastoral Counselors, Substance Abuse and Addiction Professionals and other behavioral health licenses - and they are approved or accepted in most states for most licenses.
There Are Currently More Than 100 Credit Hours Available for Mental Health and Chemical Dependency Continuing Education on This Website - and More to Come. For some quick links to our topics other than Ethics, click here.
Note: For the definition of 'CEU' and 'PDH' when earned on this website, please click here.
Our 2-, 3-, and 4-credit hour Ethics Courses are definitely unique and non-traditional, and the topics they cover are diverse.
In two of the courses (Ethics 3D and Ethics 4D), we address important ethical issues related to documentation of the diagnosis, prognosis, and the need for treatment - issues which have become newly relevant to those who are working within a Managed Care or Health Care Reform Environment for the first time.
These two courses continue to be vital for those working in private or group practices or agencies in which Care Managers make many or most of the calls about what TYPE of treatment to provide, the INTENSITY to provide, and for HOW LONG. Even those practitioners who thought they would never work under a managed health care scenario are dealing with these issues, continuously.
Our 2-Hour Ethics course (2D) deals with an ETHICAL, structured approach to working with adults and children and their families or partners around that difficult subject - Planning for End of Life Care (Advance Directives). Empirically validated approaches to use with different types of clients are provided. These include HIV-AIDS patients, families and children, stroke victims, those employed in dangerous occupations including military veterans, the aged, and other critically ill individuals.
NEW IN ETHICS! We have also added 3 NEW Clock Hours in our Ethics course offerings, with a significant expansion of our ever-popular Child and Adolescent Assessment Course 3C. This course focuses upon the details of avoiding ethical, legal, and professional repercussions when assessing children and adolescents for single or dual diagnosis issues, in both routine and emergency situations. This course is a dual focus course: It's both an ETHICS AND RISK MANAGEMENT course, as well as an ASSESSMENT and clinical DOCUMENTATION course. So take it in whichever area you choose - ethics or mental health and SUDs assessment and documentation. You can view it for FREE here.
NOTE! If you are licensed in Florida, we offer this course under a separate CEBroker Ethics approval number. So if you want to take Course 3C for Ethics and Boundaries in Florida, enroll in the course with the 'Florida' label, here.

Is Health Care Reform Making You Nervous from an Ethics Perspective? Do you wonder if you can work in a behavioral health system that's driven by 'Managed Care' and 'Health Care Reform' and 'Medical Necessity for Treatment' Criteria, and having to play 'Mother May I' to get treatment approval for your clients - and still hold on to your professional ETHICS? Find out here! You won't find this course anywhere else on the internet. Why not? We wrote it, after years of helping providers do exactly that. Take either Ethics Course 3D (3 credit hours) or Ethics Course 4D (4 credit hours).

Ethics Course 2D - 'Advance Directives: Assisting with Plans for End of Life Care'.

What Other Courses Do We Offer On This Site?
More About the Ethics 3D and 4D
Our ethics courses are quite different than the usual fare, and are among our most popular courses.
IT'S A HOT ETHICS TOPIC - AGAIN! In Courses 3D and 4D, we deal with ethical issues which have become newly relevant with the coming of the Federal Health Care Reform initiative. These are two of our most popular courses nationwide - relevant for any behavioral health practitioner who provides mental health or AOD services for a public or private health insurance plan. (And we now offer ALL of our Ethics Courses in both 'Adobe Flash' and 'PDF' formats, so that those with iPads and other mobile devices can view them.)
We tackle the question of whether licensed professionals can you hold on to their professional ethics while complying with a Care Management process which exerts an ever-expanding level of control over 'who' gets 'what' treatment and for 'how long'. Can you provide and document the type of information that is required for such definitive decisions - ethically? We think you can, and our Courses 3D and 4D tell you how. 4D is the same course as 3D, with one extra hour of credit - examining the ethics of insurance companies who are now focusing upon YOUR professional effectiveness in the treatment of your clients.
Ethics 3D and 4D are SLIDE SHOW COURSES. Watch a preview of Ethics 3D and 4D, in a PDF Slide Show format! It's self paced - at your own speed, move forward and back as you so desire. Watch it again, whenever you wish.
