    BEING PREPARED FOR THE UNEXPECTED: PRACTICE AND ETHICS OF PREPARING YOUR PROFESSIONAL WILL - 3 CE UNITS


    Rochelle Perper, Ph.D. /Mary Harb Sheets, Ph.D.

    What is a Professional Will and Why Do I Need One?

    The incapacitation or death of a Psychologist has profound ramifications for families, friends, clients, and the community. In some cases, we may be able to plan ahead for such transitions, but most of the time, death or incapacitation happens suddenly and without notice. It is crucial for Psychologists to plan ahead by thinking about how our clients and business will be managed when we are no longer able to perform our role, and who will be in-charge should tragedy strike.

    What is a Professional Will?

    A Professional Will is a plan for what happens if we die suddenly or become incapacitated without warning. It includes valuable information about a Psychologist’s professional practice so that the person designated (the ‘Executor’) can more easily respond to client’s needs and to the administrative tasks of the practice. 

     Why is a Professional Will necessary?

    A Professional Will is important for various legal, ethical, clinical, and personal reasons. Below are some of the important reasons why every Psychologist needs to have a Professional Will:

    • Psychologists have an ethical responsibility to ensure continued care for our clients
    • Having a plan in place will help clients feel safe and taken care of; likely minimizing traumatic responses and feelings of abandonment
    • The Psychologist could be at risk for legal action if a plan is not in place. For example, if a client feels abandoned or his or her confidentiality is violated 
    • Most of us feel a responsibility to our colleagues, friends, family and community to create as little burden as possible should anything happen to us

    Where Do I Start?

    There is a lot to consider when creating a Professional Will. For example, how to select an Executor, and what information is necessary to include. Once you know the elements, the process is straightforward. The best place to start is by attending the Professional Will CE course!

    This valuable workshop is part didactic and part “hands on” work on each attendee’s Professional Will. Participants will receive a fill-in template of a Professional Will prior to the training. At the workshop, attendees will be given time to work on the template, customizing it for their practice with expert guidance from the instructors.
