Rapid changes in technology and the emergence of social media as a means of communication have raised new challenges for mental health clinicians. This seminar will address ethical guidelines for thoughtful and effective use of technology in clinical practice, hopefully leading to enhanced connection with clients and reduced liability. Topics to be covered include ways in which technology may enhance or detract from the work of psychotherapy, implications for the therapeutic relationship, boundary considerations in the use of technology, privacy and confidentiality concerns of both client and therapist, risk management considerations and implications of technology for the education and training of future mental health professionals. Didactic presentation, case review and group discussion will be utilized.
RSVP is required, register online.
