Training Overview Description

Description

“It’s not the truck you see that runs you over.” Social media, like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, didn't yet exist when many of us were in graduate school, and their impact on our communication with each other - and with our clients - could hardly be anticipated. In this session, we will explore this emerging challenge by discussing the behavioral health ethical codes that apply to virtual interactions and share common challenges and recommended best practices.

Learning Objectives

  • Enumerate five ethical guidelines for behavioral health counselors that apply to social media.

  • Identify at least three possible ethical dilemmas inherent in social media.

  • Identify the social media ethical requirements for their license & discipline.

Who Should Attend

Addiction professionals, employee assistance professionals, social workers, mental health counselors, professional counselors, psychologists, and other helping professionals that are interested in learning about addiction-related matters.

Live closed captioning is available and the captioning capabilities are in compliance with the practices defined in Worldwide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.
