Title of Presentation Proposal

Pre-Conference Continuing Education Workshop - "Reflections on Ethical Dilemmas in Therapy and Supervision"

Presentation Type

Workshop

Abstract


Workshop Description

As psychologists and trainees, we are often aware that an anonymous “licensure board” monitors our work and is responsible for disciplinary actions against our licenses. We learn about ethics during our doctoral programs, and while studying for the licensure exam, then may not pay close attention after becoming licensed. This advanced-level conference session is designed to help participants understand the relationship between ethics and state laws, and the types of situations that can result in an appearance before such a board. The presenter will draw from the APA ethics code, and the psychology licensure statutes and rules for the jurisdictions of Indiana and Michigan as a foundation for the presentation.

The presentation will review psychology statutes and rules, with a specific focus on:

  1. The make-up and mission of a licensure board;
  2. Steps to filing a complaint, the process of investigating a complaint, and the potential resolutions to a complaint after filing;
  3. Discussion of complaints against psychologists related to the following topics as relevant: incompetence in provision of custody evaluations; improper sexual conduct; improper billing; responsibilities as a clinical supervisor.

This Workshop is at intermediate/advanced level of training. CE = 3 credits

The registration fee has been held to a low $30, and is separate from the conference registration fee.
