Feb. 28, 2013 - PRLog -- Professional Development Resources has added a new online course to it's curriculum that answers the questions about the use of social media for healthcare professionals. Ethics and Social Media is available online @ https://www.pdresources.org/course/index/6/1147/Ethics-and-Social-Media.

Is it useful or appropriate (or ethical or therapeutic) for a therapist and a client to share the kinds of information that are routinely posted on Social Networking Services (SNS) like Facebook, Twitter, and others? How are psychotherapists to handle “Friending” requests from clients? What are the threats to confidentiality and therapeutic boundaries that are posed by the use of social media sites, texts, or tweets in therapist-client communication? The purpose of this course is to offer psychotherapists the opportunity to examine their practices in regard to the use of social networking services in their professional relationships and communications. Included are ethics topics such as privacy and confidentiality, boundaries and multiple relationships, competence, the phenomenon of friending, informed consent, and record keeping. A final section offers recommendations and resources for the ethical use of social networking and the development of a practice social media policy.  Course #20-75 | 2013 | 28 pages | 14 posttest questions
