Program Description:

The course is designed to help you avoid problems in the ten main areas that Glenn Karr has identified that can 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.

A substantial course handbook, which will be mailed to attendees prior to the webinar, will 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. Vignettes will be used to highlight content and learning objectives by discussing specific case situations.

Learning Level: All

Learning Objectives:

As a result of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  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.
