Even psychologists who do not include forensic work in their practices are sometimes confronted with issues that bring them into the forensic arena. This workshop is designed to assist non-forensic psychologists to “think like” Forensic Psychologists in order to effectively manage situations where they may find themselves unintentionally involved in a Forensic Case. The presenters will describe and discuss relevant practice issues, including ethical concerns and how to anticipate and avoid common errors and pitfalls.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will be able to:

    1. Explain situations in which their work product could potentially be used in civil and criminal legal proceedings

    2. Describe potential ethical issues that arise at the nexus of forensic and non-forensic practice. Examples could include maintenance and release of records, avoiding dual roles/relationships, psychological testing practice and practicing within the limit of one’s competency.

    3. Using the APA Ethical Principles and Code of Conduct as a framework. Demonstrate the ability to work through and resolve ethical dilemmas that arise when forensic issues arise in a non-forensic practice setting.

    4. Apply what the participant has learned to avoid common pitfalls that can arise when non-forensic clinicians become involved in forensic cases.

    CE Hours: 3 (Ethics)
