ETHICS Employment Rights for People with Disabilities: What mental health professionals need to know (6 CEs)
In examining the 25-year ADA-era, there is evidence that suggests that people with disabilities have not experienced the increases in access to employment and the opportunities intended by the landmark legislation and, very often, mental health professionals must confront the psychological impact to patients. 
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities. Title I of the ADA covers employment by private employers with 15 or more employees as well as state and local government employers of the same size. Section 501 of the Rehabilitation Act provides the same protections for federal employees and applicants for federal employment. This course focuses on several protections for people with mental illnesses including the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Act. Both acts prohibit discrimination against people with disabilities in the workplace. In this course, we will target the following objectives: 


Challenge some common myths and false distinctions that marginalize people with disabilities.


Equip attendees with a working knowledge of disability law which will enable them to understand the nature discrimination of people with disabilities.


Review ethical issues with regard to cultural competency.


Address proper language to describe the person and the disability.


Provide attendees with general counseling tips when working with persons with disabilities.
