We live in a time of murky and very informal boundaries. Privacy is a fundamental right, and while the general public may be throwing away that right, it is the responsibility of all therapists to keep client information private. Today, psychotherapists of all professional disciplines must make thoughtful decisions about whether and to what extent they will incorporate electronic technology into their professional lives. To practice ethically, therapists who use digital and other technology must develop privacy and confidentiality protocols. This program focuses on issues related to risk management, online counseling, and HIPAA.
