As if the end of the year did not present enough opportunities for stress, California psychotherapists will have to become familiar with multiple new laws impacting their professions before the confetti drops at midnight on New Year’s Day. If you would rather spend time with family over the holidays than devote countless hours to legal research, CAMFT has you covered!

This two-hour workshop will break down multiple new laws impacting California psychotherapists that will take effect in 2022. These laws introduce significant changes to numerous subjects including mandated reporting, emotional support dog documentation, managed care, and communication between licensees and the BBS. The workshop will also provide brief overviews of CAMFT’s scope of practice bill, which was recently signed into law by Governor Newsom, new regulations for MFTs serving as supervisors, and recently enacted laws you may have missed.

Learning Objectives:
The presentation will provide an overview of:
  • Participants will be able to identify the new age ranges during which California residents constitute “elders” and “dependent adults” and recognize the new criteria for determining whether an individual is a dependent adult.
  • Participants will also be able to identify the kinds of workers who can serve as supervisors in private practices and professional corporations (i.e. employees, contractors, and/or volunteers).
  • Participants will be able to identify the differences between service dogs and emotional support animals and discuss the new regulations for providing documentation supporting patients’ need for emotional support dogs.
  • Participants will be able to state how frequently health plans must offer their enrollees non-urgent follow-up appointments with therapists (as of July 1st, 2022).


Each purchased event, will include a recording that will be available within 2 business days after the event.
