This workshop will be directed toward Intermediate and Advanced clinicians. Familiarity with relevant Codes of Ethics and State laws will be helpful. **This workshop is for licensed mental health professionals only**

At the start of the pandemic, social workers, psychologists, and counselors had to quickly pivot from traditional in-person provision of therapeutic services to figuring out how to continue treatment remotely. By now, we’re all fairly comfortable with Zoom, Teams, and other telehealth technologies, but have we really considered the ethical and legal implications of shifting to remote treatment? Or have we thought about the clinical implications of not being physically present with our patients? When an entire industry has to make rapid, radical change, mistakes are often made. Let’s take a few hours to think about this together, to review new laws relevant to telehealth practice, and to look at all this from an ethical perspective. We’ll review ethical codes and Dr. Heitt’s recently enhanced CLEAR+ lenses model of decision making along the way.

Learning objectives 

Workshop participants will:

  1. analyze conflicting factors inherent in telehealth practice.
  2. discuss the fundamentals of ethical telehealth practice.
  3. integrate knowledge about telehealth services with the CLEAR+ lenses mode.
  4. modify their practices including updating their informed consent processes.
