Remley holds the Batten Endowed Chair in Counseling at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Va., where he is the graduate program director of the master’s and doctoral counseling graduate programs. He has chaired the counselor licensure boards in Virginia and Mississippi, and has served on the board in Washington, D.C., and Louisiana. Remley has served as a school counselor, college counselor, U. S. Army officer, and has had a private practice in both counseling and law.

The focus of the training will be on major challenges faced by counseling professionals, including the ethical and legal considerations in counseling clients who may be at risk for suicide and violence and avoiding unwanted court appearances, which often are very time consuming and disruptive to the work of mental health professionals.
