You help people – it’s what you do as a behavioral health professional and your practice is about relationships.
But, you are now facing unprecedented ethical challenges in this digital age.
Technology forces you to:
- Rethink the way you deliver services
- Communicate with clients
- Access and store sensitive information
You need information to meet licensure requirements to insure that your client’s rights are protected and to help you practice within complex legal expectations.
Your practice can thrive or fail depending on your decisions and knowledge, especially in ethical issues.
This intense workshop will address these emerging issues, along with a wide range of enduring complex ethical challenges in behavioral health. Through extensive use of case material, Dr. Reamer will move far beyond introductory ethics concepts to investigate ethical dilemmas and challenges related to technology and relationships. Ample opportunity will be provided for audience participation.
