The Trust Sequence IX:  Ethics & Risk Management in Complex Clinical Conundrums
For this newest workshop, The Trust Risk Management Program reviewed data from 70,000 consultations provided to date in order to determine which issues and questions are most pressing for today’s psychologists. Topics will include boundaries and multiple relationships, challenging terminations, working with children in the midst of family conflict, coping with disciplinary complaints, and psychotherapy patient requests for legally-related documentation.

Learning Objectives
1.    Describe basic principles of risk management, as applied to several specific clinical situations that frequently arise in professional practice.   
2.    Evaluate potential risks when working with children in high conflict families.
3.    Identify high risk boundary violations and multiple relationship situations.
4.    Formulate a plan for responding to disciplinary or legal complaints.
5.    Recall important considerations when making therapeutic termination decisions.
6.    Identify issues and strategies when psychotherapy patients make quasi-forensic requests.
