Let’s face it — the digital age is here to stay, and it has ushered in a complete paradigm shift in what it means to provide quality, ethical mental health treatment.

Your current clients, and potential new ones, are accustomed to being able to receive every imaginable service using digital technology. It only stands to reason that they are seeking, and even expecting, the type of services you provide to be available in the same fashion.

Whether you’re already in the digital space, or you realize that you want and need to be, the ethical considerations are unique, complex, and exciting all at the same time.

How does going digital change client engagement?

Let Jeff Ashby, Ph.D., ABPP, RPT-S — a mental health clinician with 20 years of clinical and research experience — guide you through the ethical issues related to social media, blogs, websites, and more. Through discussion and case examples, this webinar will help you learn how to address complex ethical dilemmas while maintaining the highest standards of clinical practice.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Explain how a practical model for ethical decision-making informs the clinical practice setting
  • Articulate the legal and ethical codes that relate to utilizing technology while providing mental health services
  • Establish ethical practices to ensure client safety, maintain confidentiality, and obtain informed consent when utilizing distance mental health services
  • Consider cultural differences when using technology and articulate how this may inform the clinician’s choice of treatment interventions
  • Establish clear ethical guidelines to address the potential for a dual relationship when interacting with clients via technology
