The Santa Barbara County Psychological Association presents the following 

6 CE's for Psychologists, LCSW’s, LPCC's, LEP's and LMFT’s


Digital Ethics


With Keely Kolmes, Psy.D.

on Saturday, June 9, 2018

9am - 5pm 

 Santa Barbara  



The Internet and social networking are offering a number of new clinical and ethical challenges for those who provide face-to-face mental health services. These challenges include extra-therapeutic contacts between therapists and their clients, questions about what distinguishes personal and professional activities online, and a lack of clearly developed policies related to our online behaviors and interactions.


This course offers an introduction to digital ethics and to various social networking sites and activities and provides guidelines for how to manage the concerns that may arise for practitioners who are using these sites. Applicable ethical standards will be addressed. In addition to use of social media, we will also explore online storage, text messaging/SMS, email, and provision of teletherapy. Attendees will also participate in an exercise to help you develop language for your own social media policies for your practice, your agency, or your training site. 


By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

1. Describe social media and summarize several popular social media sites and services.

2. Distinguish between one's personal and professional activities on the Internet.

3. Identify the ethical challenges that may arise from engaging in activities on the Internet.

4. Understand some of the legal issues that are relevant to clinicians using social media and other technology in their practices. 

5. Appraise their use of e-mail, record-keeping, and mobile computing devices to prevent confidentiality breaches.

6. Construct a social media policy for one's office to address potential boundary issues 

with clients.

7. Review the different approaches and attitudes towards social networking between therapists and clients.

8. Discuss the relevant ethical issues as they pertain to therapists' web sites and social networking profiles.

9. Discuss various clinical issues that can arise due to online visibility of both clients and clinicians.
