For almost 25 years, The Trust has been providing continuing education workshops and individual consultations, with a focus on improving psychologists’ risk management skills and strategies. These workshops have evolved from basic concepts and strategies, to a more applied, integrated, and strategic approach to help you protect yourself from adverse disciplinary and legal actions.

For this newest workshop, The Trust Risk Management Program reviewed data from over 70,000 consultations provided to date in order to determine which issues and questions are most pressing for today’s psychologists. Topics will include boundaries and multiple relationships, challenging terminations, working with children in the midst of family conflict, coping with disciplinary complaints, and psychotherapy patient requests for legally-related documentation.

Infidelity as Attachment Injury:
Clinical Implications for the Betrayed and the Betrayer

Virtual via Zoom      4.0 LIVE CE Credits 

This program will be recorded for future on-demand viewing via LACPA's LMS System.

Pre-registration ends Thursday, March 11th at 11:59 PM PST

Infidelity poses one of the most common and intimidating issues for clinicians due to the significant amount of trauma and conflict these cases bring to therapy. An understanding of neurodevelopment, affect regulation/dysregulation, trauma, and attachment organization will assist the clinician in diagnosing the individual/couple, and compassionately treating both the betrayer and the betrayed partners. Effective treatment interventions are offered to foster recovery, healing, and the rebuilding of trust in relationships.
