Bruce V. Hillowe, J.D.,PhDConsidered one of the foremost experts , innovators, and leaders in  mental healthcare law and mediation, Dr.Bruce V. Hillowe brings us wide ranging knowledge in the ethical and legal issues in the mental health clinical practice of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis . Trained in Law  at Duke University School of Law, and having practiced as an attorney in private practice  since 1986 with emphasis on  health and mental health care law and mediation, Dr. Hillowe also trained and  was certified as psychologist-psychoanalyst  at Adelphi University, Derner Institute, where he is  currently on faculty as adjunct Professor, teaching Law and Ethics.

  Combining his extensive knowledge and  experiences in both litigation and mediation  with his clinical knowledge, and  with the most updated understanding of New York State mental health laws  and regulations, Dr. Hillowe will help us to  learn about the New York State legal requirements and understanding of ethical  issues involved in clinical situations clinicians  should be aware of and help us to navigate them with greater clarity .

As the new New York State regulations call for the inclusion of  3 CE Credit Hours of  ” Maintaining Boundaries”,  and all together 5 CE Credit hours of  professional Ethics course for renewal of all mental health  licenses, this one day conference is designed to fulfill  this important renewal requirement.
