Ducks in a Row: HIPAA & HB300 for Therapists CEU Workshop

doors open 8:45am
workshop time 9-12:00
3721 Dacoma Street
Houston, Texas 77092
This 3 hour workshop is based on my own research, as a solo private practice therapist, on what I need to do, know, and have to comply with the Federal and Texas state regulations. I will share what I’ve learned, and offer plain-spoken, practical guidance on how I’m doing it. I am not a lawyer and this workshop is not legal advice.
We will discuss:
- What you should have been doing to fulfill HIPAA already
- Ways that the new HIPAA guidelines are likely to affect the solo private practice therapist
- The ethics of privacy and security
- How Texas HB 300 (the Texas Medical Privacy Act) changes things
- HIPAA versus your professional Code of Ethics
- Typical problems the private practice therapist might encounter (like: email, texting, and compliance documentation)
- Solutions: products, practices, forms!, checklists!, and more resources that can help.
- This course provides 3 hours CEU, including 3 hours ethics, via the TX Social Work board & TX LPC board.
- This course meets the Federal and Texas state standards for HIPAA training.

“Katie did a wonderful job of breaking this very overwhelming & scary entity into bite-sized & manageable pieces. I no longer have to live in fear or denial about HIPPA.” Renee G, LCSW
“Katie did an excellent job. It was entertaining and informative. Since I had to drag myself there kicking and screaming it was wonderful that it turned out to be a good afternoon and not the torture I envisioned.” Paula H, LPC
“Katie is an amazing trainer who clearly communicates her in-depth knowledge with a sense of humor and a positive attitude. She actually helped me to feel energized and optimistic about incorporating these new requirements in a way that will strengthen and modernize my practice.” Gianna V, LCSW
“Katie’s ability to take a huge amount of information that is essentially a foreign language and turn it into practical, plain advice for the clinician in private practice is nothing short of a miracle! The checklists and examples are worth their weight in gold, not to mention networking and brainstorming with other therapists in the same situation, looking for solutions. Thank you Katie!” Robyn G, LCSW
“I loved Katie’s practical approach to this tedious subject. She presents HIPAA information in an easy to understand format and I found this workshop to be very valuable!” Betsy F, LCSW

“Katie did an excellent job in the training session for HIPAA preparation. She really understands what is expected and patiently explains it in an easy to understand way. She is technologically savvy …but not intimidating. I highly recommend her training!” Traci C, LCSW
