Documentation, Ethics and Boundaries

Documentation is a long-neglected but crucially important aspect of mental health practice. Internet and social media pressures are changing the landscape of mental healthcare. This workshop provides training on how and why to document, how to think about confidentiality in the medical health record, how to document risk assessments, and how the use of searches, email, and social media are changing our understanding of therapeutic boundaries.
