Abstract and Keywords

This chapter provides responses to 25 commonly asked questions regarding disciplinary and remedial interventions in graduate psychology training programs. The questions are designed to provide a framework and a process for programs responding to a trainee who is not fulfilling program expectations. The chapter distinguishes between interventions that are intended to terminate a trainee from the program and interventions that are designed to remediate a problem in competence. The chapter identifies ways to intervene that may both help programs minimize their exposure to legal liability and simultaneously respect and protect the interests of the trainees involved. The chapter begins with an overview of confidentiality in the context of psychology training as a prelude to discussions regarding liability. The chapter also addresses how FERPA, HIPAA, and the ADA apply in remedial and disciplinary processes.

Keywords: ADA, ethics, discipline, HIPAA, FERPA, law, liability, remediation, supervision, termination, training
