Professional Ethics and Technology: Practicing in a Connected Age

Presented and developed by Lisa Erickson, MS, LMHC

We practice in an environment impacted increasingly by computer technologies whether we are technology-savvy or not. In this training we will use Codes of Ethics to problem solve sample technology-related situations in a lively small group format. What should or should not be on your website? How do we handle issues related to confidentiality and secure communication? What are the pros and cons of using e-mail? Are there things on your Facebook page that you wouldn't want your clients to see? What are the ethics around the use of Skype for therapy sessions or clinical supervision?

We will use a format similar to Lisa's popular ethics training "Using your Mental Health Code of Ethics: How to avoid narcolepsy and dread while fulfilling your ethics requirement". The day is designed to be lively and participatory, and meet  state law and ethics requirements.
