Boundary Issues and Dual Relationships in Telehealth: Ethics and Risk Management Implications

Join us for a Live Webinar on March 23, 2022 from 11am-2:30pm EST
3 Ethics CE Credits available for behavioral health clinicians

Telehealth has introduced a wide array of novel boundary and dual relationship issues in behavioral health.  Traditional approaches to these issues must be expanded to address ethical challenges in the digital age.  How should I manage clients who search online and find personal information about me on the internet?  Is it ethical for me to search online for information about my clients without their knowledge or consent?  Is it ever appropriate to be online social networking "friends" with a client or former client?  Can I provide telehealth services to a former Facebook friend?  What risks are associated with "after hours" online and digital communications with clients? Dr. Frederic Reamer will explore these and other boundary and dual relationship issues in telehealth.  He will explore the implications of prevailing ethics standards and discuss ways to protect clients and help prevent ethics-related lawsuits and licensing board complaints.
Registration for "Boundary Issues and Dual Relationships in Telehealth" can be made by one of two methods:
1) Enroll in the single live event for $80
2) Enroll in the Summit 2022 for $225 and receive access to this webinar and the opportunity to earn a total of up to 15 CE credits

I took the Board Certified-TeleMental Health Provider Training Certification Course in 2018, I feel so lucky to have found the TeleHealth Certification Institute. It's a top notch training center which has continued to provide me with tools and the knowledge to grow my private teletherapy practice. I recently participated in the TeleMental Health Preparedness Summit 2020 and was definitely not disappointed. The excitement and enthusiasm from the participants and TeleHealth Certification Institute staff is contagious. I've been inspired, since, to look into taking more courses, and joined their FaceBook group. I will likely join their consultation group in the near future. I don't believe there is another training institute out there that is as good as this one for everything telebehavioral health. Thank you Ray! You are a visionary!
