Presented by Dr. Leisl Bryant

About the Webinar

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.

In-person Continuing Education Requirement:

As many of you know, the in-person continuing education requirement was waived for the 2018-2020 licensing period due to COVID. We are working with the Clinical Psychologist Licensing Board and the Acting Secretary of the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation to see if this requirement can be waived for this licensing period. We were told that there is support to do this but it will take another Emergency Rule, which cannot be issued until 150 or fewer days before our licenses renew. We don’t expect to hear anything until after April 1, 2022. We’ll let our members know as soon as we hear something.
