Ethics in Digital Marketing for Counselors and Mental Health Professionals

February 22, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:15 pm

This workshop and Panel will discuss how to use social media in a way that holds the integrity and boundaries needed in our field.  We will outline how to cultivate relationship and meaning in social media, and the ways it can be used professionally. Creating an understanding and relationship with it now allows us to understand the needs of our profession and grow with technology. The day will include breakout sessions to explore ethical concerns and questions in small groups.  The Panel will include industry experts who work with therapists on how our profession in particular can use this digital technology and social media in a current, productive, and ethical manner.
Participants will leave with a specially curated questionnaire to help them ask and answer questions about how they would like to use social media professionally.
You’ll walk away having explored how, when, and why to curate and cultivate your professional branding while maintaining ethical principles and integrity.   
* A brief overview of the field from therapist as a blank slate to the present day explosion of the digital world.  This discussion will include everything from websites to social media
* Break out experiential discussions with prompt questions including what does branding mean to you, and how to manage it maintaining ethics and integrity
* Group resuming to process break out sessions, white board thoughts and ideas on branding as mental health professionals while maintaining ethics and integrity
