Workshop Description
For over two decades, The Trust has worked to educate and support
psychologists in improving their ethics and risk management skills
and strategies by providing live workshops, webinars, risk management consultations, and expanding resources. This 14th Workshop in our Sequence series continues to emphasize applied, integrated and strategic methods to help you stay grounded in ethical principles and practices, and to protect you from adverse disciplinary and legal actions.

In today’s swiftly changing landscape, psychologists are witnessing a surge of fresh opportunities and possibilities. These emerging frontiers not only broaden the scope of professional activities for aiding clients and patients through innovative methods, but also offer avenues to
enhance and support practice in ways that were once unimaginable.
However, these new territories also come with their own set of unique
challenges, unforeseen risks, and uncertainties.

This workshop is dedicated to exploring the ethical considerations
and risk management strategies essential for effectively maneuvering through these novel domains in psychological practice. Specific topics include: necessary considerations for expanding one’s practice into new areas, psychedelic assisted therapy (PAT), the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in psychological practice, issues related to digital security, new understandings of PSYPACT and interjurisdictional telepsychology (IJTP), and effectively managing transitions in one’s practice (e.g., new employment, retirement, disability/illness, professional wills).

Learning Objectives
By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
  • Describe basic principles of ethics and risk management, as applied to several specific clinical situations that arise in professional practice.
  • List at least three areas of the ethics code relevant to expanding one’s psychological practice into new directions.
  • Describe potential risks psychologists face when growing their business in new areas.
  • Summarize at least three risk management strategies that can assist in mitigating risk.
  • Explain the current state of legality regarding this model of treatment; identify areas of unique risk when practicing PAT; and delineate at least five specific strategies for ethically managing those risks.
  • Define psychedelic assisted therapy (PAT).
  • Differentiate between legal and illegal interjurisdictional telepsychology (IJTP) practice and explain multiple avenues for legal practice.
  • Define three benefits and three risks of using artificial intelligence in psychological practice.
  • Identify three aspects of HIPAA that apply to privacy and security in emerging technology.
  • Summarize four steps in preparing for transitions in professional practice, and three action steps when these changes occur.
  • Delineate at least four risk management strategies for IJTP, both within and outside of PSYPACT, including the management of patients in crisis across jurisdictions.
