For residents falsely accused, as chillingly described in the accompanying article, the experience is often terrifying, isolating, and disorienting. At no time is a resident more in need of support and guidance from his or her training program than in such circumstances. Such experiences are genuinely traumatic for those who go through them, and there is a real danger that, in the aftermath, the resident will be less capable of tolerating the risks inherent in this work or numbed to the satisfactions that it so often provides. Other residents, watching their colleague suffer in this way, may experience a sort of vicarious traumatization, themselves. What can be done to help protect residents from false allegations, or at the least to minimize the damage that they cause? A cardinal rule of risk-management is "Never worry alone," and one of the critical practices that training programs need to teach is that of active and early consultation with supervisors, specialists, and colleagues around challenging cases. Residency programs can set an expectation that senior supervisors and directors are consistently and enthusiastically available to consult on difficult cases, and the culture of the program should be one where residents are encouraged to share both emotionally and clinically challenging situations. Also, training in the forensic aspects of psychiatric practice, or what has been referred to as Therapeutic Risk Management (2), can help residents and supervisors understand the role of the legal system in influencing psychiatric practice, as well as the specific requirements of the state in which they are training.
