Resilience Lab Continuing Education Program Grievance Procedure

Resilience Lab Continuing Education Program is fully committed to conducting all
activities in strict conformance with the American Psychological Association’s Ethical
Principles of Psychologists. Resilience Lab Continuing Education Program will
comply with all legal and ethical responsibilities to be non-discriminatory in
promotional activities, program content and in the treatment of program participants.
The monitoring and assessment of compliance with these standards will be the
responsibility of the CE Program Director and Chair, Dr. Anica Camela Mulzac, in
consultation with the members of the continuing education committee.

While Resilience Lab Continuing Education Program goes to great lengths to assure
fair treatment for all participants and attempts to anticipate problems, there will be
occasional issues which come to the attention of the continuing education committee
staff which require intervention and/or action on the part of the committee staff. This
procedural description serves as a guideline for handling such grievances:

1. When a participant, either orally or in written format (to
kendolyn.walker@resiliencelab.us), files a grievance and expects action on the
complaint, Resilience Lab Continuing Education Program will respond in a
reasonable, ethical and timely manner. For all grievances, the CE Program
Administrator, Ms. Kendolyn Walker, * will review the grievance and consult
with the continuing education committee, including Program Director and
Committee Chair. The following actions will be taken.

2. Grievance about a presenter: If the grievance concerns a speaker, the content
presented by the speaker, or the style of presentation, the individual filing the
grievance will be asked to put their comments in written format and submit
them kendolyn.walker@resiliencelab.us. The CE Program Administrator, after
consulting with the CE Program Director and Committee Chair, will then pass
on the comments to the speaker, assuring the confidentiality of the grieved
individual. In addition, the Program Administrator may take any of the actions
described in “Grievances about course content” below.

Grievances about course content: If the grievance concerns a workshop
offering, its content, level of presentation, or the facilities in which the
workshop was offered, the CE Program Administrator will mediate and will be
the final arbitrator. If the participant requests action, the Program Administrator
will:

a) Ask the participant to provide additional information on their concern,
so that it may be clearly defined; or
b) Amend course materials; or
c) Attempt to move the participant to another workshop or
d) Provide a credit for another workshop or
e) Provide a partial or full refund of the workshop fee.

Actions d and e will require a written note, documenting the grievance, for
record keeping purposes. The note need not be signed by the aggrieved
individual.

Grievances about facilities (live events): If the grievance concerns the
facilities in which a live course was offered, the Program Administrator will
mediate and will be the final arbitrator. If the participant requests action, the
Program Administrator may:
a) attempt to move the participant to another workshop; or
b) provide a credit for a subsequent workshop or program; or
c) provide a partial or full refund of the workshop fee.

Actions b and c will require a written note, documenting the grievance, for
record keeping purposes. The note need not be signed by the aggrieved
individual.

Grievances about the program: If the grievance concerns Resilience
Lab Continuing Education program, in a specific regard, the CE Program
Administrator, with support of the CE Program Director and Committee Chair,
will attempt to arbitrate.
