About the Webinar

Licensing boards are appointed to protect consumers and have long had procedures that make a psychologist’s defense seem adversarial. Without records to support one’s narrative and good judgment, the chance of a negative outcome is substantial. This presentation will address record keeping and access to records from a risk management perspective. In addition to exposure to licensing board action, it will cover HIPAA record access rules, psychotherapy notes, and insurance audit issues.

Registration and CE Credit

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email. All National Register members, Canadian Register members, Trust Insureds, and paid attendees will earn one (1) CE credit upon successful completion of the webinar and evaluation.
