    The Utah Psychological Association 
    Presents:

    How to Rise Above the Ethical Demands of Utah Psychologists

    Presented by Andrew Benjamin, Ph.D., ABPP

    Registration: 8:30 A.M.
    Presentation:  9:00 A.M. – 4:00 P.M. 

    6.0 CE Hours

    Please remember:  this year (2020) is license renewal year and ALL psychologists need 6.0 hours of Ethics. 

    Overview:

    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. Please feel challenged to bring your toughest ethics questions to the workshop process!

    Learning Objectives:

    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.

    Presenter Biography: 

    Andrew Benjamin, Ph.D., ABPP

    While working with families engaged in high-conflict litigation and lawyers suffering from various mental health and drug abuse problems, Dr. Benjamin was named "Professional of the Year" by the Washington State Bar Association's Family Law Section. He was elected to serve as President of the Washington State Psychological Association and later his colleagues created an Association award named after him for "outstanding and tireless contributions." He was honored by the Puyallup Indian Nation's Health Authority for serving as a "modern day warrior fighting the mental illnesses, drug-alcohol addictions" of the people served by the Nation's program. After being elected representative of Washington to the APA’s Council for two terms, he was appointed the Council’s Parliamentarian, and served in that capacity during four terms.  He has served as a member and a Chair of the APA’s Committee on Legal Issues, and the APA’s Policy and Planning Board. He also served as a member of the APA Board of Educational Affairs. He is the Past-President of APA’s Division for States, Provinces and Territories. Dr. Benjamin is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association (Divisions 18, 31, 41, 42, 43, 45, 49, and 55).  Finally, he served as the inaugural Chair of a Committee implemented under one of APA’s Good Governance recommendations: Needs Assessment, Slating & Campaigns Committee.  The APA conferred the Karl F. Heiser Award in recognition of his record of public service and advocacy in numerous areas of professional activity.

    While serving on the faculty of the Department of Psychology and School of Law for University of Washington, Dr. Benjamin has published 73 peer reviewed articles in Psychology, Law, and Psychiatry journals.  He is the author of five books published by APA-- Law and Mental Health Professionals, Washington; Family Evaluation in Custody Litigation: Promoting Optimal Outcomes and Reducing Ethical Risks (1st & 2nd editions); The Duty to Protect: Ethical, Legal, and Professional Considerations for Mental Health Professionals; and, Educational Evaluations of Children With Special Needs: Clinical and Forensic Considerations; and one book published by Sage-- Ethics for Psychologists: A Casebook Approach.  A free lecture about conducting trauma informed child custody evaluations is posted by the Nicholas and Dorothy Cummings Foundation.

    Dr. Benjamin continues to love an ardent feminist for 50 years, 43 years married.  Their two adult children live and work in Seattle as mental health professionals!
