Webinar: Ethics in a Digital Age
This will be a lively overly ambitious training which discusses rules and regulations governing digital communications, the use of social media, telepsychology, and crossing state lines as a licensed provider. In doing so, we will go beyond traditional ethical courses which just discuss confidentiality, duty to warn, and duty to protect in the context of a professional practice.
Advertising and ethics will be explored, as we examine ethics in these professions from an individual (micro), group (mezzo), and community (macro) perspectives.
In this webinar, you will:
- explain, describe, and differentiate digital policies and ethics for licensed clinicians;
- review confidentiality, duty to warn, and duty to protect in a Facebook, Snapchat, and Instagram world;
- examine the usage of social media and advertising;
- evaluate telepsychology and the ethical dilemma it poses; and
- re-evaluate our practices as behavioral health leaders in the field.
The impact of the opioid epidemic on delivery of services along with the legalization of marijuana and the "me too" movement will be some of the more global ethical issues we will explore as practitioners.
