Common Reasons for Disciplinary Actions

Psychologists play a vital role in our communities, providing crucial mental health services. However, even the most dedicated professionals can face accusations of misconduct. Here at Durak Law, we have extensive experience representing psychologists in a variety of disciplinary matters, including:

  • Substandard Care: This encompasses allegations of failing to meet the standard of care expected of a psychologist in a particular situation.
  • Negligence: This could involve accusations of causing harm to a client through your actions or inactions.
  • Boundary Violations: Disciplinary action may be taken if there are allegations of inappropriate relationships with clients.
  • Improper Recordkeeping: Failing to maintain accurate and complete client records can lead to disciplinary action.
  • Prescription Issues: Psychologists in Tennessee with prescribing privileges can face disciplinary action for improper prescribing practices.
  • Criminal Charges: Criminal convictions can also impact your psychologist license.

What is the disciplinary process for psychologists accused of misconduct?

If you're facing accusations of misconduct from the Tennessee Board of Examiners of Psychology, it's crucial to understand the formal process that follows. Here's a breakdown of the potential steps involved:

  1. Complaint Filing: The process starts with a formal complaint filed against you with the Board. This complaint can come from a client, colleague, or even a third party.
  2. Investigation: Upon receiving the complaint, the Board will initiate an investigation. This may involve reviewing documents, interviewing witnesses, and gathering evidence relevant to the allegations. The Board may also contact you to request your perspective on the situation.
  3. Formal Hearing: If no settlement is reached during the disposition conference, a formal hearing will be scheduled. This is a quasi-judicial proceeding where both sides present evidence and arguments before a hearing officer or panel. You have the right to be represented by legal counsel at this stage.
  4. Decision and Order: Following the hearing, the Board will issue a written decision and order. This document will outline the Board's findings regarding the allegations and any potential disciplinary actions, which could range from dismissal of the complaint to a reprimand, license suspension, or even revocation.

Don't wait to take action. The sooner you contact an experienced attorney after receiving a complaint, the faster they can build your defense. Remember, the Tennessee Board must follow due process, guaranteeing you a fair chance to defend yourself. Understanding the potential consequences of each disciplinary action, from dismissal to license revocation, is vital.
