Training Title:
Digital World and Confidentiality, Part 1

Clock Hours: 1

After completing this course, participants should be able to: • Explain the concepts of informed consent, duty to warn and confidentiality and how to explain these concepts to one's clients. • Recognize the nuances and requirements for protecting the confidentiality of clients in the digital world. • Recognize the ideal way clinicians should exchange telephone calls with a client.

Privacy is a fundamental right and while the general public may be throwing away that right, it is the responsibility of all therapists to keep client information private. This is because the therapeutic/counseling relationship is predicated on respecting human dignity. Whenever we conduct a therapy session—whether in person, on the phone, or in cyberspace—ethical rules are always implicitly present, insuring that whatever therapeutic space is being created is truly a safe haven in a world in which circles of emotional safety and protection are in exceedingly short supply. In this interview, Allan Barsky discusses how therapists and counselors can maintain the privacy of their patients/clients in a time of murky boundaries. Keywords: Ethics, HIPAA, digital security, confidentiality
