In this article, found in the November APA Monitor on Psychology, the authors present an overview of the research that explains why seriously ill, and consequently distressed, psychologists may be ineffective at assessing and monitoring their professional competence and determining whether they should stop working. In addition, they recommend ways psychologists can prevent and manage the threats to their competence that may come with life-threatening illnesses. 

Part of the APA Monitor’s CE Corner article series.
