The San Diego CAMFT chapter, in collaboration with the San Diego County Bar Association, presents the first workshop in a 3-part series that brings therapists and attorneys together to explore and learn about topics that are mutually relevant to each profession and the unique working relationship that often brings the two together. Our first workshop on confidentiality and privilege in court proceedings will explore the topic from each perspective, including what to expect from working with one another, professional expectations towards responding to inquiries from either party, court room protocol and procedure when involving third party professionals, and normalizing the experience of collaborative work between therapists and attorneys. Please join us for dialogue, collaboration, and networking.
