2019 PAGPS Fall Workshop

Online Group Psychotherapy: Ethical and Legal Issues

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: The omnipresence of technology has made group psychotherapists vulnerable to inadvertent boundary crossings, ethical breaches, and legal quandaries, especially given the almost daily changes in the ways we communicate electronically. We will discuss the issues we need to be aware of as well as ways to address these concerns.

OBJECTIVES: At the conclusion of this workshop, the participants will be able to: 1. Define the difference between privacy and confidentiality. 2. List three factors that might negatively influence the appropriateness of online psychotherapy for a particular client. 3. List three boundary issues that are specific to the use of online group psychotherapy. 4. Describe four ways one can establish safeguards that allow one to practice online group psychotherapy while maintaining ethical standards.

REGISTRATION INFORMATION: $75 for members of PAGPS and Philadelphia Society of Clinical Psychologists (PSCP) $100 for non-members $15 for student members $20 for student non-members

Presenter: Shari Baron, MSN, CNS, CGP, FAGPA

In over 40 years as a nurse, psychotherapist and educator, Shari has explored ethical issues that impact the practice of the group psychotherapist.  She has used leadership positions in the American Group Psychotherapy Association and the American Psychiatric Nurses Association to increase awareness of these issues and to encourage discussion of the hard choices we all make each day.
