15% off your Trust-sponsored Professional Liability Policy premium (for 2 consecutive years at policy renewal)

For almost 25 years, The Trust has been providing continuing education workshops and individual consultations, with a focus on improving psychologists’ risk management skills and strategies. These workshops have evolved from basic concepts and strategies, to a more applied, integrated, and strategic approach to help you protect yourself from adverse disciplinary and legal actions.

For this newest workshop, The Trust Risk Management Program reviewed data from over 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.


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