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.

Target Audience: The Trust’s workshops and webinars are appropriate primarily for psychologists and psychology students, but may also be useful to other related behavioral health practitioners.

Learning Objectives

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

CE Credits
6 Ethics credits are available for attendance.
