Keynote Presentations 

This year, we will present almost 30 sessions on various issues facing regulators. Here are some of the keynote presentations. 

Sexual Boundary Violations: A study of practitioner characteristics

S. Michael Plaut, Ph.D., Formerly Adjunct Faculty, Department of Psychology, UNC Wilmington; Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Assistant Dean for Student Affairs, University of Maryland School of Medicine 

Thirty-four Maryland health professionals referred for tutorial ethics education after being found to have crossed sexual boundaries with patients were studied. The presentation will describe demographic characteristics, violations specified in board orders, sanctions imposed, possible risk factors identified, and consequences for the respondents beyond the sanctions imposed. Incidence of recidivism and behavioral correlates of recidivism will be discussed. Recommendations will be made for determination of effective sanctions and for preventive education, with special attention to various patterns of compliance motivation as well as non-sexual boundary crossings that may be precursors of sexual boundary violations. 

Determining the Truth of a Statement

Mark McClish, President, Advanced Interviewing Concepts 

There are several ways you can phrase a statement. People will always word their statement based on all their knowledge. Therefore, their statement may contain information they did not intend to share. People’s words will betray them. By closely examining a person’s language, you can determine if a person is being truthful or deceptive.
