The online world is a big, complicated place and involvement in it is not optional. With all the many and varied ways this medium presents itself—web sites, blogs, e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and who-knows-what’s next—it’s easy for a therapist to make mistakes in its use. This workshop addresses many of these important issues, and explains how therapists can make informed and accurate decisions as they engage in this online world.

Learning objectives:

  • Defines HIPAA compliancy in its relation to therapists’ use of their own web sites, their e-mail, and their presences of social media outlets such as Facebook and Twitter
  • Demonstrates the privacy and other hazards of using so-called “free” e-mail systems such as Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Hotmail, AOL, etc.
  • Discusses core Internet terminology and explains why understanding this jargon is crucial to the proper use of online media
  • Summarizes these and other topics with case studies of haphazard vs. secure approaches to using these forms of communication
