Technology is advancing at a dizzying pace and is becoming increasingly central to the provision of psychological services. From portable devices to digital records to interjurisdictional practice to mental health apps, technology has brought remarkable benefits to our work; and at the same time created an increasingly complex set of ethical, legal, and regulatory challenges. In this rapidly evolving environment, the need to maintain an active risk management strategy is perhaps even more central than ever.

This workshop is a next-generation discussion of digital world issues. After a brief introduction describing The Trust Risk Management Philosophy and Strategy, this workshop will provide a review and update on the ethical, legal, and risk management dimensions of technology. We will focus broadly on these issues related to digital record keeping, telepsychology, digital communications, and social media. The workshop is applicable to all sites where health services are provided.

Learning objectives - After completing this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Summarize The Trust’s Risk Management Philosophy, including strategies for identifying high risk situations and managing professional practice risks.
  • Develop and review strategies for managing digital record keeping challenges.
  • Describe risks regarding emerging approaches to telepsychology practice.
  • Identify strategies for managing online and social media risks.

Programming/content level is suitable for all professional audiences.

DISCLOSURES:  IPA and Dr. Taube report having a significant financial interest with The Trust.  IPA has an endorsement agreement and Dr. Taube is a
Risk Management Consultant for that organization.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Those who attend the workshop and complete the Trust evaluation form will receive six (6.0) ethics continuing education credits. Please note that APA CE rules require that we only give credit to those who attend the entire workshop. Those arriving more than 15 minutes after the scheduled start time or leaving before the workshop is completed will not receive CE credits and will not be eligible for the 15% premium discount described below.


Workshop completion earns 6.0 CE credits and eligibility to receive a 15% premium discount on your Trust Sponsored Professional Liability Insurance for your next 2 consecutive policy periods. To obtain CE discounts, submit CE certification from an organization approved by APA to offer CE credit (must have been completed within the previous 15 months) with the insurance application. Discounts cannot be combined and are not applicable to Researcher/Academician or Student policies. Group policies become eligible for the CE discount when at least 50% of those insured under the group policy submit CE certification. All applications are individually underwritten and submission of CE certification will not guarantee insurance policy issuance or renewal.
