This will occur via Zoom and you will be sent a link on April 16, 2020 to join the livestream. DOPL has relaxed the requirement and this presentation will count as an in-person learning. It will not count against your distant learning CEs.
Please remember, all psychologists need ethics for licensure renewal in September, 2020.
The workshop will focus the attention of Utah psychologists on how to meet ethical standards that are the most likely cited in licensing board complaints. Topics that will be covered during the presentation and through reflections and discussions include informed consent and reporting duties; confidentiality and privilege; standards for valid and reliable evaluations; multiple relationships; duty to protect; and record keeping standards.
In light of ethical and professional considerations, participants will reaffirm how to meet the standards of practice sufficiently for Utah Psychologists regarding:
- the provision of sufficient information about mandatory reporting duties during the informed consent process;
- the creation of case documentation that results in protecting client confidences sufficiently, no matter who accesses the records;
- the avoidance of multiple relationships, particularly when working with families or children because of lawyers who demand records or testimony;
- the evaluation and intervention components that enable meeting the duty to protect; and
- the ethical responses to addressing subpoena, and complying with court orders.
- Telepsych during COVID-19
