Attend the Kansas Psychological Association Webinar


Adventures on the Electronic Frontier: Ethics and Risk Management in the Digital Era


Friday, June 26, 2015, 9:00 AM to 5:15 PM Central Time


(8:00 AM to 4:15 PM in Sherman, Wallace, Greely, and Hamilton Counties)


Webinar presented by The Trust and Eric A. Harris, Ed.D., J.D.

The Trust's Ethics and Risk Management Continuing Education Workshops are widely recognized for their timely content and value to psychologists, particularly those insured through The Trust Sponsored Professional Liability Program. This recent sequence in the workshop series is presented live in selected locations nationwide, but now you can participate in a webinar from the comfort of your own space. Completing this course earns you 6 CE credits and makes you eligible for a 15% savings on your Trust Sponsored Professional Liability Insurance premium for two consecutive years at next policy renewal.


How it works:
This six-credit-hour "SIMULIVE" webinar enables those who can't travel to a live workshop to virtually attend and earn the same CE credit and 15% insurance premium reduction afforded those physically attending a workshop. It consists of a prerecorded and streamed presentation followed by a one-hour online Q&A session with the webinar presenter. Participants must be present during the entire webcast (verification codes will be flashed onscreen at random times throughout the presentation). There will be a 15-minute morning break, a 1-hour lunch break, and a 15-minute afternoon break during the webcast.


Why you need to attend this webinar:
With the expansion of the digital age, even psychologists who have no interest in providing some or all their services remotely are being confronted by issues having to do with the new internet and computer-based technologies. Facebook, Google, cyber reviews and attacks, email, texting, Twitter, Skype, real time audio and visual technology, encryption and computer security are impacting almost all psychologists. This webinar gives participants a means to evaluate risks, benefits, and appropriateness of using various electronic communication and social networking media in professional practice; and to potentially utilize good risk management strategies in the provision of remote professional services.
