Description
This introductory workshop provides guidance to psychologists interested in delivering psychological services through technology. This workshop is appropriate for individuals incorporating existing technology (e.g., telephones, fax machines) in their practice, those seeking to augment their practice with new technologies, and those seeking to cultivate a technology-based practice. Participants will receive an overview of technology in practice, popular technologies in practice, key ethical and legal considerations, risk-assessment strategies, considerations for appropriateness of technology-based services, clinical applications and techniques and emergency management strategies.
Learning Objectives
1. Describe how psychologists employ technology in clinical practice.
2. Identify popular methods for using technology to augment clinical interventions within a psychological practice.
3. Recognize key legal and ethical issues to consider when using technology in clinical practice and list top three concerns relevant to most psychologists.
4. Analyze common threats to information security, privacy, and confidentiality when using technology in clinical practice.
5. Evaluate and identify which clients are best served using technology to augment clinical services.
6. Recognize important aspects of emergency planning, informed consent, and record keeping specific to the use of technology in clinical practice.
7. Conduct a risk assessment of current use of technology within your own practice, and create a plan to ethically integrate new technologies, if desired.
