When the Therapy Room is Not a Room at All:  The Ethical considerations in long distance therapy

Presenter: Ernest Wallwork, PhD

CE: 6 Ethics Credit Hours

June 13, 2021 and June 27, 2021
9:30 AM - 12:30 PM

The Program

How do we integrate ethical reflection and judgment with more familiar ways of evaluating remote clinical work?  The aim of this workshop is to re-examine ethically and technically aspects of clinical work outside the office in light of our collective experiences during the pandemic. Clinical cases will be used to  explore together how ethical standards need to be rethought when applied to remote work.  Participants are encouraged to bring their own conflicts, questions and doubts about the challenges, ethical as well as technical, of their own remote clinical experiences for discussion.


Objectives

1)   Participants should be able to identify some typical ethical paradigms used unconsciously in our evaluation of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis online or on the phone.

2)   Participates will become apprised of core benefits and risks of clinical encounters outside the office.

3)   Participants will be able to appreciate novel possibilities of creatively enhancing  clinical interactions made possible by new technologies.

4)  Participants will learn to reason ethically as well as technically about some of the new risks to treatment made possible by remote connections
