Ethics and Boundaries in a World of Technology

  • March 6 & March 13. 2014 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Participants will gain an enhanced awareness of the complicated nature of technology and social media as it interfaces with the provision of services within human service organizations.  Participants will learn techniques for ethical decision making in situations where technology or social media is utilized. This program is designed to be interactive as participants share challenging ethical issues encountered in their practice.  Internet-based services including counseling, education, therapy groups and other social services utilizing technology will be addressed.  The establishment of professional boundaries while using social media and providing services in a virtual world will be discussed. The content will also cover the use and cautions when developing an agency website, and in the use of online investigation resources. HIPPA and confidentiality will be addressed in the context of using technology in practice.    Participants will also learn about the importance of using the NASW Ethics audit in programs that cover both client services and personnel management.

Technology is an integral part of what we do as social workers and enables us to do our work better, yet it may also present difficult challenges to ethical practice. Since technology advances and changes rapidly, the professional must be prepared to apply ethical principles to new situations to meet those challenges. Using MPSW 20, the NASW Code of Ethics, and the NASW/ASWB Standards for Technology and Social Work Practice, this workshop explores ethical issues related to boundaries and the use of social media, electronic communications and records, telehealth, access to technology by professionals and clients, risk management, cultural competence and vulnerable populations in technology, and practice competencies in technology. Various scenarios will be presented for small group discussion. Participants are encouraged to bring their own scenarios for the group.
