Live Webinar Description

For almost 25 years, The Trust has been providing continuing education workshops and individual consultations, with a focus on improving psychologists’ risk management skills and strategies. These workshops have evolved from basic concepts and strategies, to a more applied, integrated, and strategic approach to help you protect yourself from adverse disciplinary and legal actions.

For this newest workshop, The Trust Risk Management Program reviewed data from 70,000 consultations provided to date in order to determine which issues and questions are most pressing for today’s psychologists. Topics will include boundaries and multiple relationships, challenging terminations, working with children in the midst of family conflict, coping with disciplinary complaints, psychotherapy patient requests for legally-related documentation, and, time permitting, working with clients in other jurisdictions.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe basic principles of risk management, as applied to several specific clinical situations that frequently arise in professional practice;
  • Identify high risk boundary violations and multiple relationship situations;
  • Recall important considerations when making therapeutic termination decisions;
  • Evaluate potential risks when working with children in high-conflict families;
  • Formulate a plan for responding to disciplinary or legal complaints;
  • Identify issues and strategies when psychotherapy patients make quasi-forensic requests;
  • Develop a decision-making strategy regarding working with clients in other jurisdictions.

Continuing Education Credits

Ethics & Risk Management in Complex Clinical Conundrums is sponsored by The Trust and TrustPARMA. The Trust is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. The Trust maintains responsibility for this program and its content.

Continuing Education Grievance Policy

The Trust is fully committed to conducting all activities in strict conformance with the American Psychological Association's Ethical Principles of Psychologists. The Trust will comply with all legal and ethical guidelines for non-discrimination in promotional activities, program content, and in the treatment of CE participants. The Trust CE Director is responsible for complying with these standards. While The Trust strives to assure fair treatment for all participants and to anticipate problems before they occur, occasionally grievances may be filed. In cases where a participant files a written or oral grievance, the following actions are taken:

  • If the grievance concerns the content of the workshop, webinar, book or the continuing education test, a Trust representative will mediate and will be the final arbitrator. If the participant requests action, the CE Director or a Trust representative will either provide a credit for a subsequent CE offering or provide a partial or full refund of the CE fee already paid.
  • Actions involving a credit or a refund will require a written note documenting the grievance for recordkeeping purposes. The aggrieved individual need not sign the note. If the grievance specifically concerns The Trust, the CE Director or Trust representative will attempt to arbitrate.
