The Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery is proud to announce the following webinar opportunity, scheduled for Tuesday July 21, 2015, from 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm. Registration information is attached.

Should you use on-line resources for therapeutic purposes? This webinar will explore cutting-edge ethical issues arising out of behavioral health professionals' increasing use of digital technology, social media, and electronic interventions and communications to serve youth in recovery. Dr. Reamer will examine complex ethical issues related to professionals' and clients' use of social networking sites, e-therapy, chat rooms, moderated forums, Web-based psychoeducation, self-guided Web-based intervention, video conferencing, telephone therapy, avatar therapy, expert systems, search engines, email exchanges, text messages, smartphone apps, and client blogs.

Feel free to distribute it to anyone else you think might be interested.
