Workshop Description
For almost 25 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.

For this newest workshop, The Trust Risk Management Program reviewed data from over 70,000 consultations provided to date in order to determine which issues and questions are most pressing for today's psychologists. Topics will include boundaries and multiple relationships, challenging terminations, working with children in the midst of family conflict, coping with disciplinary complaints, and psychotherapy patient requests for legally-related documentation.
Workshop Objectives
  • Describe basic principles of risk management, as applied to several specific clinical situations that frequently arise in professional practice;
  • Identify high risk boundary violations and multiple relationship situations;
  • Recall important considerations when making therapeutic termination decisions;
  • Evaluate potential risks when working with children in high- conflict families;
  • Formulate a plan for responding to disciplinary or legal complaints; and
  • Identify issues and strategies when psychotherapy patients make quasi-forensic requests.

Those logging in more than 15 minutes after the scheduled start time or logging out before the workshop is completed will not receive CE  credits and will not be eligible for the 15% premium discount described below.
Eligibility for Insurance Premium Discounts
Workshop completion earns 6 CE credits and eligibility to  receive a 15% premium discount on your Trust Sponsored  Professional Liability Insurance for your next 2 consecutive
policy periods. To obtain CE discounts, submit CE certification  from an organization approved by APA to offer CE credit  (must have been completed within the previous 15 months)  with the insurance application. Discounts cannot be combined  and are not applicable to Researcher/Academician or Student  policies. Group policies become eligible for the CE discount  when at least 50% of those insured under the group policy  submit CE certification. All applications are individually  underwritten and submission of CE certification will not  guarantee insurance policy issuance or renewal.
Continuing Education Grievance Policy
HPA is fully committed to conducting all activities in strict  conformance with the American Psychological Association's Ethical  Principles of Psychologists. HPA will comply with all legal and  ethical guidelines for non-discrimination in promotional activities,  program content and in the treatment of CE participants. The HPA  CE Program Chair is responsible for complying with these standards.
While HPA strives to assure fair treatment for all participants and  to anticipate problems before they occur, occasionally grievances may  be filed. In cases where a participant files a written or oral grievance,  the following actions are taken:
* If the grievance concerns the content of the workshop, webinar,  book, or a continuing education test, an HPA representative will  mediate and will be the final arbitrator. If the participant requests  action, the CE Chair or an HPA representative will either  provide a credit for a subsequent CE offering or provide a partial  or full refund of the CE fee already paid.
* Actions involving a credit or a refund will require a written note  documenting the grievance for record-keeping purposes. The  aggrieved individual need not sign the note. If the grievance  specifically concerns HPA, the CE Director or HPA  representative will attempt to arbitrate.
