E&B WEBINAR: Ethics, Boundaries, and Technology in a Post-Covid World

May 22nd, 2024, 9 AM - 1 PM CST

Presented by Debra Minsky-Kelly, MSW, LCSW
Debra Minsky Kelly

Workshop summary: The effects of technology on social work practice since the onset of the pandemic have been enormous. Out of necessity, many providers rushed to adopt technology-assisted practices in an effort to continue to provide care to those in need. What have we learned from these practice changes? Are the 2018 changes to the Social Work Code of Ethics adequate to address modern practice challenges? This workshop will explore these critical questions and will also examine some of the specific boundary-related issues that arise in technology-assisted practice. In addition, as the evidence mounts regarding the harmful effects of technology on mental health, relationships, and community wellbeing, we will ask critical questions regarding the role of our profession in addressing these concerns.
