    About the Presentation

    Digital technology has never before held such incredible promise for running a mental health practice and serving our clients. At the same time, however, it has never carried such a myriad of difficult-to-perceive risks around our clients’ privacy, our clinical boundaries, and potential liability for our practices.

    Mental health clinicians foster health in our clients wherever they are in the process, and we need the correct tools to help us do that. Myths abound about legally and ethically appropriate ways to meet client desires for email, texting, and online video. We hear about the growing pressure to switch to electronic records and many of us already see value in paperless practices.

    This training will take attendees from an exploration of our relationships with technology and “digital confidentiality,” through how to appropriately use that technology in our practices, and finally to a concrete demonstration of how to perform the processes required for compliance with the HIPAA Security Rule. All the while, we will learn concrete techniques and tools side-by-side with relevant ethics codes, professional guidelines, and HIPAA Security standards for digital technology in mental health care.

    Go beyond just the HIPAA checklists and join a technologist/professional counselor to learn realistic, non-fear based rules of HIPAA compliance, ethics codes on technology, and how we use technology to help clients and ourselves.

    Educational Objectives

    • Communicate with clients using electronic tools in a manner that is compliant with legal and ethical standards, including HIPAA
.
    • Protect computers and mobile devices for ethical practice and HIPAA compliance
    • Use cloud services to improve client care, practice efficacy, and HIPAA compliance
    • Describe security standards like encryption and when we need them in clinical practice – legally, ethically and practically
    • Incorporate clinician and client behaviors around security/privacy into clinical practice
    • Conduct a HIPAA-compliant security risk analysis and create a security risk management plan

    Program Goals

    • Implement HIPAA Security standards and ethical guidelines in a client-centered way Use email, texting, and online video appropriately with clients
    • Decide if and how to use electronic records
    • Practical, legal, and ethical considerations around digital technology in mental health
    • Improve your own relationship with technology and HIPAA
    • Dispel the myths about HIPAA that bog down our work

    Presented by Benjamin E. Caldwell, Psy.D.

    In this law & ethics update, we will review recent changes to state law, discuss the role of technology in modern practice, and engage in a deep discussion of the morals and values that underlie individual ethical decision-making processes. Difficult decisions without clear or easy answers will be the focus of the day. Through the use of case examples, this workshop will show how our individual morals and values influence therapy work even when we seek to appear neutral; how to identify your own morals and values relevant to your practice; and why owning those values matters.

    Educational Goals

    • Assisting therapists in understanding the role that their own morals and values play in clinical and ethical decision-making.
    • Encouraging therapists to think critically about that role and its implications for therapy.
    • Informing therapists about recent developments in court cases and ethical standards related to the personal values of the therapist.
    • Encouraging therapists toward transparency with clients about the therapist’s values, in accordance with ethical standards and the therapist’s theoretical orientation.

    Learning Objectives

    • Identify at least two personal morals and values most relevant to your psychotherapy practice
    • Differentiate between a personal opinion, a clinical opinion, advice-giving, and imposing personal values
    • Construct a framework for clinical and ethical decision-making that integrates personal morals and values in a manner that is within professional ethical boundaries and appropriate to your clientele
    • Identify three common frameworks for making value-based decisions
    • Identify at least two implications from court cases involving mental health students’ moral decision making.
