Legal and Ethical Issues with Technology in Mental Health

A client goes on vacation and they want to schedule a session while they are out of state.

How do you ethically and legally practice in this situation?

Smart phones are used for scheduling and for exchanging information. What happens if these phones are misplaced?

Emails are used to send important information to other professionals. How do we ensure the right person receives this information?

How do you ensure confidentiality of your clients in this digital age?

In today’s technologically-advanced world it is difficult to keep up with the ever-changing laws and standards for using technology in our field. There are issues that are not clearly defined.

  • New laws regarding using technology in your mental health practice
  • What the code of ethics states and how to apply this information
