PowerPoint Presentation on Behavioral Health Care Policy, Law, and Ethics

PowerPoint Presentation on Behavioral Health Care Policy, Law, and Ethics

This week, you will have the opportunity to assess behavioral health care policy, law, and ethics as these apply to the multidisciplinary nature of behavioral health care settings. For this Assignment, you will create a PowerPoint presentation of your findings, and then use Kaltura (a video capture technology) to submit a video of you presenting your findings. Refer to the Kaltura instructions found on your course navigation menu for more information on how to use Kaltura to create and submit a video screen capture of your presentation. To prepare for this Assignment: Download at least two different codes of ethics from two different disciplines and the mental health laws from a state in which you plan to practice. You may use this week’s Learning Resources as a starting point. Analyze the codes of ethics from different disciplines to determine if there are any discrepancies between them that would cause disagreements or difficulties in multidisciplinary teams. For example, would a psychologist have different duties or priorities than a social worker? Consider how you would manage any competing demands or values of the different professions or disciplines. Review how to use Kaltura to record your presentation. The Assignment: First, compose a 5- to 7-slide PowerPoint presentation that addresses the following: Provide an analysis of the codes of ethics from two different disciplines and the mental health laws from a state in which you plan to practice. In your analysis, include the following: What discrepancies exist between the codes of ethics from the two disciplines you chose that would cause disagreements or difficulties in multidisciplinary teams? Give specific examples of where they align or differ. How would you manage any competing demands or values of the different professions or disciplines? Assess whether and how state laws are consistent with the various ethical codes. If they are in conflict, what takes precedence? Then, record yourself presenting your PowerPoint presentation. Use the Kaltura Uploader tool to record and upload your screen capture and audio narration of the PowerPoint presentation.
