Psychologists routinely encounter patients whose symptoms lie at the borderland between neurology and psychiatry. Treatment of these patients can give rise to a number of unique ethical questions and challenges. CPA has convened an expert panel comprised of a bioethicist, clinical neuropsychologist, and clinical health psychologists who will provide real world examples and ethical frameworks to address some of the challenges that arise in working with patients who fall between the disciplines of neurology and psychiatry. This session will be interactive and conclude with an expert panel discussion dedicated to addressing the audience’s questions and unique ethical challenges.
