This live training on Ethical Dilemmas and Complex Relationships in Police & Public Safety Psychology is presented by Jeni McCutcheon, PsyD, ABPP & Jocelyn Roland, PhD, ABPP.
Police and public safety psychology is a specialized practice domain that requires knowledge of the services provided to consumers, understanding legal issues associated with service delivery, and cultural competency related to the environments in which practice occurs. This workshop will address steps to manage ethical dilemmas in accordance with the APA Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct. Through didactic material and interactive discussion of case examples, attendees will advance their ability to manage predicaments in this distinct environment. The workshop will also encourage interactive discussion and problem-solving practice. All four of the domains of police and public safety psychology (intervention, assessment, consultation and operations) will be covered in this presentation to ensure that a broad offering of case examples are provided. Because few psychologists practice in all domains of psychology, this presentation includes two seasoned police and public safety board-certified psychologists whose experience together covers many of the activities of police and public safety psychology provision.
We are pleased to offer virtual attendance for all our workshops via ZOOM. Virtual attendees will be emailed all the details to connect via ZOOM and will be sent electronic copies of all materials.

You will then be able to unmute your microphone and ask your question or make your comment. If you do not have a microphone, please type your question or comment in the chat box and the room monitor will read it aloud to the presenter.
