Spring Ethics Event: Technology in Mental Health Practice

Saturday April 29th, 2017

9am – 4pm

JOIN US for a morning full of practical information about the legal and ethical use of digital communication in therapeutic practice. Then stay for the afternoon to discuss therapeutic and emotional ways we relate to digital technology.

It is sure to be an informative and engaging way to obtain 6 hours of ethics CEUs.

The following questions will be answered:

  • What needs to be covered in my disclosure statement about digital communication with patients?
  • What are the legal and ethical risks around texting and emailing patients?
  • How do I know I am HIPAA compliant when using text and email?
  • What do I do if I lose my phone or laptop with saved patient information?
  • Are there ethical implications to receiving electronic payments, such as Square or PayPal?

Roy Huggins will answer these questions and more. He will also provide handouts to take home! To find out more about Roy, visit his website: https://personcenteredtech.com/
