Workshop description:

For over two decades, The Trust has worked to educate and support psychologists in improving their risk management skills and strategies by providing live workshops, webinars, risk management consultation and expanding resources. The 10th workshop in our Sequence series will continue to emphasize more applied, integrated and strategic methods to help you protect yourself from adverse disciplinary and legal actions, and stay grounded in ethical principles and practices.The Trust Risk Management Consultants have culled subject matter from some 80,000 consultations provided to date to focus this workshop on problems practitioners often encounter. Topics will include how decision science can inform clinical and ethical decision-making; interjurisdictional practice challenges and navigating the PSYPACT era; complexities in structuring and conducting supervision; managing technology and privacy concerns in practice; and handling subpoenas and depositions. The workshop is designed for an intermediate level.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe basic principles of risk management, as applied to several specific clinical situations that frequently arise in professional practice.
  • Identify core heuristics and biasing processes that can interfere with appropriate risk management and ethical decision-making.
  • List three strategies to ameliorate decision-making challenges.
  • Describe preliminary considerations prior to engaging in interjurisdictional practice.
  • Evaluate potential issues and preventive responses to supervisory risks.
  • Identify three methods for reducing privacy risks when using technology in clinical practice and responding appropriately to breaches if they occur.
  • Name three strategies for handling subpoenas and deposition demands.
