Nebraska Psychological Association 2021 Fall Conference

“Sequence X: Perplexing Problems in Psychological Practice: Decision Science, Ethics & Risk Management"

Presenter: Daniel Taube, J.D., Ph.D.

Friday, Nov. 12, 2021

8:30 – 4:00  CDT

Live via Zoom

Course Description:

For over two decades, The Trust has worked to educate and support psychologists in improving their risk management skills and strategies by providing live workshops, webinars, risk management consultation and expanding resources. The 10th workshop in our Sequence series will continue to emphasize more applied, integrated and strategic methods to help you protect yourself from adverse disciplinary and legal actions, and stay grounded in ethical principles and practices. The Trust Risk Management Consultants have culled subject matter from some 80,000 consultations provided to date to focus this workshop on problems practitioners often encounter. Topics will include:

  • how decision science can inform clinical and ethical decision-making;
  • interjurisdictional practice challenges and navigating the PSYPACT era;
  • complexities in structuring and conducting supervision;
  • managing technology and privacy concerns in practice; and
  • handling subpoenas and depositions.
The workshop is designed for an intermediate level.

**The updated Nebraska psychology regulations require at least 3 of the 24 hours of continuing education must be in ethics relating to psychology beginning with the 2021– 2023 renewal period.
