    Course Description:

    Ethical decision making in the 21st Century poses numerous challenges for the mental health clinician, including maintaining privacy and confidentiality in the era of social media and electronic communication, increasingly diverse client populations, and changing landscapes for what is considered pathology in the era of gender fluidity and different viewpoints on non-traditional sexual practices. This course will provide detailed guidelines for how to navigate these changes while remaining ethically compliant, with models of decision making and a template to lead the clinician through a best practices ethical decision making process.

    Upon Completion of this course participants will:

    - Understand the challenges to confidentiality and privacy posed by electronic modes of communication and the changing landscape of privacy requirements defined by the updates to HIPAA known as the Hi-Tech Act and the Final Omnibus Rule of March 2013.
    - Comprehend how to address issues of informed consent within a social media and electronic communication culture, including ethical best practices approaches and the use of HIPAA compliant forms and templates that secure appropriate informed consent.
    - Learn the emerging landscape of ethical best practices in addressing issues related to cultural diversity, gender fluidity, and non-traditional sexual practices.
    - Solidify the key legal, ethical and clinical knowledge base that must be part of the active vocabulary of any clinician who wishes to operate ethically in the year 2019, including state and federal laws concerning privacy, harm prevention, rights of minors and best practices models of ethical decision making.
