148 Psychological Assessment
of Undocumented Immigrants:
Intersection of Practice, Ethics,
While psychology has achieved greater understanding of the
cultural complexities of evaluating the psychological needs
of immigrants in clinical and educational settings, there is a
dearth of resources for psychologists providing professional
affidavits to immigration courts and other forensic and judi-cial/legal settings. This introductory workshop explores the
challenges and opportunities for psychologists serving undocumented immigrants. Participants will gain practical tools to
discern the professional and ethical use of forensic psychological evaluations for immigration courts and resources to begin
acting as informed advocates during the current immigration
Leader: Douglas C. Ribeiro, PhD, Lipscomb University
149 Responsible Quality Service:
The Ethical Imperative of
Having trained as a psychologist, you have now become a
manager. Other professionals report to you, and you are
responsible for the success of the workgroup and its legal
and ethical responsibilities. This intermediate workshop
assists you in connecting the dots between doing things right
for organizational success and doing the right thing. Highly
interactive and building on the experience of the managers
in attendance, the workshop addresses ethical issues of psychologists managing in health care, mental health, education,
and public service.
