6 Ethics CEs

Program Description:

For close to 30 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 and to support competent practice.

For this newest workshop, The Trust Risk Management Consultants

have continued to review data from nearly 90,000 consultations provided

to date, along with relevant research, to determine the problems

practitioners often confront, and potential strategies for addressing

them. The topics in this new workshop will include an updated review

of decision science and its implications for bias and vulnerability in

clinical, ethical and risk management decision making, strategies for

reducing the impact of these vulnerabilities, issues arising in remote

services (during and beyond the pandemic), addressing boundaries in

advocacy by professionals on behalf of their clients/patients, and the risk-management implications of self-care (or its absence) for psychologists.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe three general challenges to unbiased decision-making 
  2. Identify three vulnerabilities that can affect clinician decision-making, in particular 
  3. List four strategies to address decision-making bias and improve ethical and risk management choices 
  4. Summarize three risk-related aspects to remote service provision 
  5. Differentiate general areas in which professional advocacy is and is not appropriate 
  6. Identify two issues when psychotherapy patients make quasi-forensic requests 
  7. Evaluate three methods of engaging in self-care to support better practice and risk-management
