Digital technology offers clinical and ethical challenges for those who provide face-to-face mental health services. These include extra-therapeutic contacts between therapists and their clients, questions about what distinguishes personal and professional activities online, dealing with clients’ online evaluations, the ethical and clinical issues involved when clients Google therapists and therapists Google clients, and a general lack of clearly developed policies in the field related to our online behaviors and interactions. This is particularly the case given that the technologies, and the related ethical and clinical complexities, continue to change at a rapid pace.

2 CE units will be offered for attendance.
