A practitioners' use of digital technology has become enormously complex. Therapists are confronted with what to do about managing their online presence whether or not they are actively using social media. In addition, therapists face challenges in managing confidentiality and privacy issues, personal disclosure, dual relationships, and documentation of electronic contact, as well as multiple issues related to clinicians' use of the Internet, email, or texting to provide therapy. Our speaker addresses some of the ethical and legal ramifications of these challenges.
