For over two decades, The Trust has worked to educate and support psychologists in improving their ethics and risk management skills and strategies by providing live workshops, webinars, risk management consultations, and expanding resources. Th is 14th Workshop in our Sequence series continues to emphasize applied, integrated and strategic methods to help you stay grounded in ethical principles and practices, and to protect you from adverse disciplinary and legal actions.

In today’s swiftly changing landscape, psychologists are witnessing a surge of fresh opportunities and possibilities. Th ese emerging frontiers not only broaden the scope of professional activities for aiding clients and patients through innovative methods, but also offer avenues to enhance and support practice in ways that were once unimaginable. However, these new territories also come with their own set of unique challenges, unforeseen risks, and uncertainties.

Workshop XIV is dedicated to exploring the ethical considerations and risk management strategies essential for effectively maneuvering through these novel domains in psychological practice. Specific topics include: necessary considerations for expanding one’s practice into new areas, psychedelic assisted therapy (PAT), the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in psychological practice, issues related to digital security, new understandings of PSYPACT and interjurisdictional telepsychology (IJTP), and effectively managing transitions in one’s practice (e.g., new employment, retirement, disability/illness, professional wills).

Session will include regular breaks and a 1-hour lunch break
