Says scientific research formed basis for court’s action (more)

On June 16th, KPA representatives were pleased to join Governor Beshear in his signing and enactment of SB 51, the "Duty to Warn" legislation, which allows psychologists to break confidentiality when a patient makes a violent threat or expresses homicidal intent. The previous law only made "duty to warn" legal for patients in an inpatient setting; now, patients in outpatient settings are included in the definition. Dr. Sheila Schuster reminds us to celebrate every advocacy victory. Thanks to all of you who made calls and visits on behalf of this bill, for the tireless work of Dr. Sheila Schuster, the KPA Advocacy Committee, McCarthy Strategic Solutiions, and our past and present bill sponsors: State Senator Morgan Mcgarvey, Senator Whitney H. Westerfield, and Representative Robert Benvenuti

APA article, Recovering Emotionally from Disasters

Following the Annual Board Retreat over the weekend of May 29-30th, the KPA Board has recommended that a survey be developed and deployed to assess the attitudes that the KPA membership has towards prescriptive authority (RxP) for psychologists. KPA has occasionally surveyed the membership in the past regarding this issue. Given that there are three states that have passed laws granting prescriptive privileges, the KPA leadership constituted a Psychopharmacology Task Force (chaired by Steve Katsikas, Ph.D., Spalding University) to explore RxP. Member participation will be solicited via email in the next 30-45 days. Posted: 6/4/2015

Member Highlights
