It is important to understand more than the prescribed code of ethics for each profession. A thorough understanding of the history and evolution of ethics puts the need for guidelines and boundaries into perspective. Awareness of the intersection of the law, morality and ethical decision-making is imperative. With the widespread increase in telehealth services, it is important that mental health providers are aware of the ethical considerations regarding virtual care.
This course will address those considerations and more, in the context of increasingly virtual mental health practices. It will provide provocative examples of how to use ethics as a personal and professional guide in both face-to-face and virtual settings. Psychologists, Social Workers, Counselors and Therapists have one common mandate – to facilitate client wellness. Remaining objective, while displaying empathy can only be accomplished when certain boundaries are in place. This course will assist participants shape boundaries for telehealth practice that are comfortable for them.

2. Identify and describe the evolution of ethical Models for Application today
3. Analyze concrete examples of ethical violations with clients
4. List 2 ethical considerations specific to telehealth practice
