Workshop Description

Technology is advancing at a dizzying pace and is becoming increasingly central to the provision of psychological services. From portable devices to digital records to interjurisdictional practice to mental health apps, technology has brought remarkable benefits to our work; and at the same time created an increasingly complex set of ethical, legal, and regulatory challenges. In this rapidly evolving environment, the need to maintain an active risk management strategy is perhaps even more central than ever.

Workshop Objectives
  • Summarize The Trust's Risk Management Philosophy, including strategies for identifying high risk situations and managing professional practice risks.
  • Develop and review strategies for managing digital record keeping challenges.
  • Describe risks regarding emerging approaches to telepsychology practice.
  • Identify strategies for managing online and social media risks.

This workshop is a next-generation discussion of digital world issues. After a brief introduction describing The Trust Risk Management Philosophy and Strategy, this workshop will provide a review and update on the ethical, legal, and risk management dimensions of technology. We will focus broadly on these issues related to digital record keeping, telepsychology, digital communications, and social media. The workshop is applicable to all sites where health services are provided.

We look forward to seeing you at the East-West Center for
this special HPA Workshop conducted by the Trust.

Ethics and Risk Management in a Digital World 2.0 is sponsored by Hawaii Psychological Association. HPA is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. HPA maintains responsibility for this program and its content. 

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Those who attend the workshop and complete the Trust evaluation form will receive six continuing education credits. Please note that APA CE rules require that we only give credit to those who attend the entire workshop. Those arriving more than 15 minutes after the scheduled start time or leaving before the workshop is completed will not receive CE credits and will not be eligible for the 15% premium discount described below.

Eligibility for Insurance Premium Discounts

Workshop completion earns 6 CE credits and eligibility to receive a 15% premium discount on your Trust Sponsored Professional Liability Insurance for your next 2 consecutive
policy periods. To obtain CE discounts, submit CE certification from an organization approved by APA to offer CE credit (must have been completed within the previous 15 months) with the insurance application. Discounts cannot be combined and are not applicable to Researcher/Academician or Student policies. Group policies become eligible for the CE discount when at least 50% of those insured under the group policy submit CE certification. All applications are individually underwritten and submission of CE certification will not guarantee insurance policy issuance or renewal.

Target Audience

The Trust's workshops and webinars are appropriate primarily for psychologists and psychology students, but may also be useful to other related behavioral health practitioners.

Continuing Education Grievance Policy

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

While HPA 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.

  1. If the grievance concerns the content of the workshop, webinar, book, or a continuing education test, an HPA representative will mediate and will be the final arbitrator. If the participant requests action, the CE Chair or an HPA representative will either provide a credit for a subsequent CE offering or provide a partial or full refund of the CE fee already paid. 

  2. 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 HPA, the CE Director or HPA representative will attempt to arbitrate.
