Risk Management Roundtables


On-Demand Webinars (Non-Sequence) – The Trust

Risk Management Roundtables are available free of charge as a live and on-demand webinar. They are created specifically to meet the needs of psychologists and mental health clinicians, and consist of several Trust Risk Management Consultants discussing and advising about ethical and risk management issues.

In these Roundtables, participants are encouraged to raise their own questions and concerns for discussion. Discussion and exploration of various risk management and ethical dilemmas will occur, with a focus on helping participants tease out the clinical, legal, ethical, and risk management factors as we all work to meet the best interests of our clients in this difficult time.

Trust policyholders can combine 6 or more credit hours earned from each live or on-demand event in our Virtual Webinar Series and save 15% on their Trust Sponsored Professional Liability insurance policy for two consecutive renewal periods.
