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. 

NOTE: Due to the sensitive nature of the material and to encourage audience participation, this Workshop will NOT be recorded and made available later. We are only offering the LIVE program.
