CE Event: Ethics and Risk Management for Online and Social Distance Work
Ethics and Risk Management for Online and Social Distance Work: Best Practices featuring Frederic Reamer, PhD
Online and distance social work has quickly come of age. It is important to adopt best practices to work online in an ethical and effect way. For some social workers, remote delivery of services reaches clients who live long distances from their office or who’s special needs limit their ability to travel. For other social workers, online and distance social work has become a sudden necessity because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. It is essential for social workers to keep pace with rapidly evolving ethical and legal standards governing online and distance practice.
This webinar will provide an up-to-the-minute overview of prevailing standards in social work. Dr. Frederic Reamer will discuss recent technology-related updates to the NASW Code of Ethics; new technology standards adopted jointly by the NASW, ASWB, CSWE, and Clinical Social Work Association; and relevant laws. He will discuss potential benefits and risks of online and distance social work services, and present practical strategies to protect clients and prevent licensing board complaints and litigation.
