Practice in the Age of Telepsychology

This program looks at the increasingly dynamic field of telepsychological practice.  Panelists will provide an overview of the key principles identified in the APA Guidelines for the Practice of Telepsychology -- developed jointly by the American Psychological Association (APA), the Association of State and Provincial Psychological Boards (ASPPB), and The Trust.  Presenters will outline risk management considerations for telepractice, examine the Psychology Interjurisdictional Compact (PSYPACT) to facilitate telepractice across state lines and highlight relevant laws, regulations and other policies relating to issues of informed consent, insurance coverage mandates, and privacy and security considerations. 


Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify critical professional, legal, and ethical issues in providing telepsychological services as outlined in the APA Guidelines for the Practice of Telepsychology.
  2. Discuss and consider potential regulatory mechanisms considered by licensing boards for overseeing telepsychology practice, including interjurisdictional practice, to ensure patient access and safety.
  3. Evaluate patient confidentiality, privacy and security concerns, and  payer policy issues specific to telehealth care practice.

Continuing Education Credits

Continuing Education Grievance Policy

The Trust is fully committed to conducting all activities in strict conformance with the American Psychological Association's Ethical Principles of Psychologists. The Trust will comply with all legal and ethical guidelines for non-discrimination in promotional activities, program content and in the treatment of CE participants. The Trust CE Director is responsible for complying with these standards. 

While the Trust strives to assure fair treatment for all participants and to anticipate problems before they occur, occasionally grievances may be filed. In cases where a participant files a written or oral grievance, the following actions are taken: 

  • If the grievance concerns the content of the workshop, webinar, book or the continuing education test, a Trust representative will mediate and will be the final arbitrator. If the participant requests action, the CE Director or a Trust representative will either provide a credit for a subsequent CE offering or provide a partial or full refund of the CE fee already paid.
  • Actions involving a credit or a refund will require a written note documenting the grievance for record-keeping purposes. The aggrieved individual need not sign the note. If the grievance specifically concerns The Trust, the CE Director or Trust representative will attempt to arbitrate.
