Workshop Description:

Technology is advancing at a dizzying pace and is becoming increasingly central to the provision of psychological services. From portable devices to digital records to interjurisdictional practice to mental health apps, technology has brought remarkable benefits to our work: and at the same time created an increasingly complex set of ethical, legal, and regulatory challenges. In this rapidly evolving environment, the need to maintain an active risk management strategy is perhaps even more central than ever. 

This workshop is a next-generation discussion of digital world issues. After a brief introduction describing The Trust Risk Management Philosophy and Strategy, this workshop will provide a review and update on the ethical, legal, and risk management dimension of technology. We will focus broadly on these issues related to digital media. The workshop is applicable to all sites where health services are provided.

Course Objectives:

  • Summarize The Trust's Risk Management Philosophy, Including Strategies for identifying high risk situations and managing professional practice risks.
  • Develop and review strategies for managing digital record keeping challenges.
  • Describe risks regarding emerging approaches to telepsychology practice.
  • Identify strategies for managing online and social media risks.

[Early-Career] EPPP Update

Posted: June 20, 2018

Dear CPA

As some of you may be aware, the ASPPB (The Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards), which implements the EPPP for licensure, has developed a "Part 2" which would intend to better assess potential licensee's practical competence. This new two part version of the EPPP is slated to take effect in January of 2020 and would greatly change the process through which psychology candidates attain licensure. The current EPPP would turn into "Part One" and continue to assess for foundational knowledge in psychology, whereas the new "Part Two" would be a skills assessment using an interactive computer program providing mock client/patient situations. The primary goal of the ASPPB is to standardize the way in which we assess individuals' readiness and competence to practice, despite the high variations in training and clinical experiences across graduate programs.
