This training is intended for treatment providers who have a basic understanding of addiction counseling and confidentiality regulations. During this 6-hour training, there will be didactic lectures, PowerPoint slides, open discussions and two small-group activities.

This training will include a review of codes of ethics, HIPAA, 42 CFR part 2, including a review of the recent changes, and the overlap and impact on each other. We will discuss ethics as a risk management issue, including boundary violations, and dual relationships and the challenges social media presents to boundaries. It will utilize an ethical decision making model; explore technology driven ethical issues; and describe specific techniques to stay ethical when utilizing various technology applications.
