Ethical Guidelines for the Counselor in the Computer Age

Many of us remember computers before the World Wide Web and the Internet. Some of us remember computers before they had keyboards – when you could send graduate students into apoplexy by bumping and scattering their Fortran card stacks and an IBM Selectric with a correction key was the latest in word-processing technology. Nowadays, the convenience and ubiquity of instantaneous electronic communication is both stunning and troubling: What information can I send by email? Should I have a Facebook page? What about Skypeotherapy Psychotherapy? These, and many other, questions present ethical dilemmas that our predecessors never faced.

Susan Campling RN, PsyD will explore the issues in the “Ethical Guidelines for the Counselor in the Computer Age” Saturday Institute workshop on Saturday, May 12, 2012. The Institute runs from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Hoskins Center at Memorial Health University Medical Center.

Dr. Campling will provide legal and practical perspectives for the clinician who interfaces (which in itself is a computer-age word) with the electronic media. Facebook, Twitter, Skype, computerized assessment, vulnerability to unauthorized remote access to our computer’s data, HIPAA implications, and myriad other topics will be addressed during this 5 hour presentation. Participants will receive 5 hours of CE credit. (If you don’t have your ethic hours for license renewal, this is one of your last chances.)

Lunch is included in the price of the conference.  All attendees will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win a copy of David Burns' Toolkit, a $200 value.
