Ethics and risk management issues in online and distance behavioral health
19 March 2021 |1:00 pm - 2:30 pm GMT150
Behavioral health practitioners have become increasingly dependent on technology to provide online and distance (remote) services to clients. This trend has introduced complex and novel ethical and risk management issues. Dr. Frederic Reamer will discuss key ethics challenges; provide an overview of emerging ethical, regulatory and practice standards; and share a series of practical tips.

Am I allowed to provide online and distance counseling services to a client who has moved to another state? What should I include in my social media policy? Is it ethical to search online for information about clients without their knowledge or consent? If you find these and other complex issues related to online and distance behavioral health services challenging, this is the webinar for you. Come hear ethics expert Dr. Frederic Reamer share his insights about effective ways to protect clients and prevent litigation and licensing board complaints.
