Description

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 technology as the format.

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

Let Jeff Ashby, PhD, ABPP, RPT-S – a mental health clinician with 20 years of clinical and research experience – be your guide as you explore the ethical issues related to social media, blogs, websites, and more. Through discussion, case examples, and experiential exercises, learn how to address complex ethical dilemmas while maintaining the highest standards of clinical practice.
