Second Edition Information:
Many new areas of practice have emerged along with new methods of communication between therapists and patients since the introduction of this popular book and independent learning course. Some of these changes have resulted in uncertainty for psychologists regarding ethics and professional liability. With its goal to provide psychologists with helpful and relevant risk management guidance in mind, The Trust has gathered experts to research new issues facing the profession and to present a variety of practical strategies.
With the Second Edition of Assessing and Managing Risk in Psychological Practice: An Individualized Approach, The Trust and The Trust Practice and Risk Management Association (TrustPARMA) have updated their core ethics and risk management principles and provided important new information — all designed to help psychologists identify and understand some of the ethical and legal implications of psychology practice today. Topics include:
Emerging areas such as forensic services and coaching
Digital forms of interaction and social media
Privacy, confidentiality, and privileged communications
Multiple relationships and boundaries
Working with couples, families, and children
Psychologists in the courtroom
Psychological assessment and testing
Potentially suicidal or dangerous patients
Business, retirement, and insurance concerns
