ETH101 Ethics - The Challenge and Dilemma of Technology
This program focuses on the challenges facing us in a world where boundaries are loosened and technological developments allow for forms of therapy that are not always conducted face-to face.  In addition, this program focuses on what it truly means to be an ethical therapist, not merely one who merely follows the codes or rules.
Course Objective
At the completion of this program, participants should be able to: 
  • Recognize the ethical safeguards to consider if “seeing” patients via Skype or other digital communication. 
  • Identify relationship boundaries through Social Media. Take into consideration personal information clients may have access to.  
  • Determine if text messaging is a viable clinical method to practice.
