Summary

This class meets Wisconsin’s requirements for ethics and professional boundaries for continuing education for helping professionals.

The electronic medical record is exposing clinicians to greater privacy and boundary challenges. Internet and social media pressures are also changing the landscape of mental healthcare. Add to this the opportunities and perils of "big data" and subsequent effects on risk assessment and the growing prevalence of telemedicine and you have a lot of change in a short amount of time.

This presentation will tackle some of the ethical issues involved in working with the electronic record. We will also discuss boundary issues involved with internet searches of clients, e-mail and texting as therapy and providing telemedicine services.
