Ethical Issues in the Electronic Age

2.50 CE Hours Available
2.50 CE Hours Ethics

New ethical issues are emerging in this rapidly changing environment of electronic communication and telehealth. However, specific standards do not exist to address these dilemmas. Knowing how to respond to these challenges requires a unique approach to ethical decision making grounded in the overarching ethical principles.

This workshop will focus on the ways in which electronic communication, telehealth, and social media promote or prevent client welfare. Dr. Knauss will present case examples and participants will be encouraged to share their own ethical dilemmas.

All orders include the entire presentation with handouts and a CE test.
Streaming videos and audio downloads will be available immediately after checkout
Mailed CD and DVD formats include the printed handouts and CE test in an attractive portfolio
