Summary
"In preparing this volume, we followed one guiding principle: the contents are confined to what practitioners need to know or should consider. There are three goals: (a) to provide a practical manual that demonstrates how the ethical principles within which a practitioner must operate can be applied in a real world; (b) to help practitioners understand how the laws governing practice work; and (c) to explain some of the basics of how the system that protects practitioners, including insurance, can work for practitioners. This book was designed to answer the questions about professional liability that are asked by all mental health practitioners, not just psychologists. This volume has five chapters, which fall into two sections. Part I (chapters 1 to 3) focuses on the practical meanings of malpractice, duty of care, ethics, the law, and liability insurance and how they interact. Chapter 1 provides a few examples of the types of suits brought against psychologists from all specialties. Chapter 2 discusses the real meaning of ethics and practice guidelines. Chapter 3 discusses the nature of professional liability and its relation to practice. Part II (chapters 4 and 5) provides suggestions about how practitioners can integrate safeguards into daily practice that will best accommodate the interests of clients and practitioners. These practical suggestions appear in chapter 4 in the form of focus lists. Next, chapter 5 explains the role and structure of professional liability insurance"--Introduction.
