Ethics, the Internet, and Social Media – Cleveland

3 CEs (Ethics credit).

Younger clients and community-based clients are seeking online contact with mental health care providers at an increasing rate. Online media offer the promise of increased efficiency and effectiveness of therapeutic services, supervision of trainees, and peer consultations. However, they also present risks to both client and professional. In addition to the practical concerns about the security of the technology and the problems with misunderstanding of any text-based communications, there are uncertainties about the effectiveness of these innovative interventions (especially when used in the absence of fact-to-face contact). The diligence with which mental health professionals protect client confidentiality and conduct appropriate informed consent is also an area of concern.

This workshop explores the ethical and legal responsibilities of mental health professionals in use of technology for treatment, follow-up, peer consultation, and supervision experiences. Current standards, guidelines, and regulations will be analyzed and applied to vignettes drawn from practice, along with discussion and response to questions by Dr. Welfel.

Instructor: Elizabeth Reynolds Welfel, Ph.D., Training Co-Director in Counseling Psychology and Professor at Cleveland State University, has been teaching graduate students in counseling and counseling psychology for more than 30 years. Dr. Welfel has authored numerous articles on the ethics of professional practice and her book, Ethics in Counseling and Psychotherapy: Standards, Research and Emerging Issues, is in its fifth edition. Along with Dr. Elliott Ingersoll, she has co-edited the Mental Health Desk Reference. Her other books include The Counseling Process (with Patterson) and Using Test Data in Clinical Practice (with MacCluskie and Toman). She has co-edited an APA Press book entitled, The Duty to Protect: Ethical, Legal, and Professional Considerations for Mental Health Professionals. She has conducted numerous continuing education programs on professional ethics. Dr. Welfel received her doctorate in counseling psychology from the University of Minnesota in 1979 and has been a licensed psychologist in Ohio since 1986.

A Day-Long Workshop with Terry Real – The New Rules of Marriage: A Relational Life Therapy Approach to Couples and Couples Therapy – Cincinnati

6 CE
Many couples today expect a level of physical, intellectual, and emotional intimacy never before imagined by previous generations. Unfortunately, few have the relationship skills needed to achieve this. RLI addresses the asymmetry between the relational appetites and skills that people bring to their relationships and provides strategies to challenge the losing strategies partners use.
You will learn how to coach couples to proactively go for what they want, speak to repair, listen with empathy, respond with generosity, and take the time to cherish each other. You will also learn how to present the truth of what you see happening in a relationship, without the need to diffuse your impact by trying to be even-handed. Workshop will include a live demonstration of the RLI approach featuring an interview between Terry and a real-life couple. While this workshop is for all counseling professionals, couples and individuals from the community are welcome to attend.
Presenter – Terry Real – Terrence Real is the bestselling author of I Don’t Want to Talk About It: Overcoming the Secret Legacy of Male Depression and How Can I Get Through to You?: Reconnecting Men and Women. He has been a practicing family therapist for more than twenty years and has lectured and given workshops across the country.
