We are pleased to announce that the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards (ASPPB), the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP), the National Register of Health Service Psychologists (The Register) and the American Insurance Trust (The Trust) have formed an interorganizational consortium dedicated to advancing the needs and interests of licensed psychologists and psychologists-in-training. Together, these four organizations represent the majority of psychologists in America.
In these unprecedented times, when many of our clients are working, studying, and entertaining their families from home – and relying on technology more than ever – Chubb is here to help keep you safe.
The Trust Board recognizes and acknowledges members of our Board, staff, community and policy holders who have been impacted in personal ways by the recent spate of horrific murders of Black people, including Rayshard Brooks, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery and many others named and unnamed. These acts of racial violence, anti-Blackness, and institutional racism have a long history and are deeply embedded in our society and disproportionately impact communities of color.
Dr. Jana Martin, CEO of The Trust, joins Dr. Graham Taylor to address ethics and considerations around the medium of video conferencing and how that can affect your patients and practice. They look further into the recent explosion in telehealth and how it can allow practitioners to extend their services and provide patients greater access to treatment.
We have received a large volume of calls from our insureds about how to manage the risks the corona virus pandemic poses to patients and to themselves. As risk managers, we are committed to supporting you in ethical, safe practice. We provide general risk guidance based on current knowledge and conditions. Of course, we are unable to provide medical advice. If you have specific questions about your individual situation, please feel free to schedule a call to speak with one of The Trust’s Advocate 800 Program's risk managers.
