Program Description:

The course is designed to help you avoid problems in the ten main areas that Glenn Karr has found that increase the risk to psychologists for licensing board and lawsuit complaints. It is essentially a risk management workshop with a strong emphasis on ethical considerations. The course materials provide the laws and rules for the Psychology Board (4732.17 OAC) as well as for HIPAA. Ethics areas covered include Risk Management Issues, Confidentiality, Ethics of Supervision, HIPAA requirements and other regulatory compliance.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will:

  1. Recognize the top ten problem areas, which include dealing with supervision issues, high conflict divorce issues, determining when a person is or is not actually a client, properly handling records issues, responding to subpoenas, avoiding multiple and problem relationships, dealing with duty to report and protect issues, and complying with HIPAA laws and rules,
  2. Recognize areas of the law which impact those high risk practice areas, and
  3. Learn ways to avoid problems in those high risk practice areas.
