Special HEDS Ethics and Technology Event

September 7, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Technology Assisted Services – A primer!

This event is eligible for Ethics CEUs.

The potential to use technology assisted services (TAS) in the practice of therapy, supervision,and learning has grown exponentially and continues to grow daily. This ability to serve in exciting new ways also comes with new issues and responsibilities that need to be addressed to ensure that we are using best practices with TAS. This training will begin to address these issues and give you a primer on how to implement technology easily and ethically into your practices.
Participants in the workshop will:
  • Review some new board rules (for MFTS specifically) in Texas about TAS
  • Explore creative ways to engage clients using TAS
  • Discuss limits of TAS
  • Discuss eating-disorder specific issues and benefits of using TAS

Please note: While the presenter’s focus on board rules are specific to MFT’s, they are good, rigorous guidelines for TAS.  It would be positive risk management to follow them regardless of discipline.
