    Psychological Practice Sequence VII: Working with Couples and Families, Risk Management with the Suicidal Patient, and Legal and Ethical Issues presented by Retirement  

    Friday, September 29, 2017

    Workshop Summary:

    The times they are a changing.  The continued dominance of managed care companies over third party reimbursement and the new uncertainty created by the Affordable Care Act in both the private and public sectors have increased the complexity of the legal and regulatory environment faced by psychologists.  In this unpredictable environment, the need to avoid adverse disciplinary events remains an important priority and an active risk management strategy is still an essential element of professional practice.

    After a brief introduction describing The Trust’s Risk Management Philosophy and Strategy, this workshop will focus on three specific topic areas: working with couples and families, working with potentially suicidal clients, and the ethical and legal challenges of developing a  professionally and personally appropriate retirement strategy.  The workshop is applicable to psychologists working in all types of settings where health services are provided.

    • Identify essential risk management strategies for assessing and managing outpatient suicide risk.
      Identify “post-vention”  strategies for managing risk after a patient suicide.
    • Identify “self care” strategies for psychologists who have suffered the loss of a patient to suicide.
    • Describe the different professional retirement pathways.
      Identify the  advantages and disadvantages of various strategies in planning for your own personal and professional retirement.
    • Describe how to effectively and ethically close a professional practice.
