Workshop Description: 

Think you’re not doing telehealth? Think again. Not only are you doing it, but there are specific legal and ethical requirements you’re mandated to follow. If you’re found to be in violation, pleading ignorance won’t get you off the hook. This workshop will not only teach you how to be in compliance, but we’ll also explore ways to make technology work for you. Ethical use of technology is not JUST about risk management. It’s also about using technology to help you run your practice more efficiently and maybe even have a good time doing it.

Learning Objectives

  1. List three things you can do to minimize telehealth legal and ethical risks.
  2. Discuss topics that should be included in a telehealth informed consent.
  3. Describe five uses of technology that might benefit your practice of psychology and/or employment setting.
  4. Discuss the pros and cons of storing client records, including PHI (Personal Health Information) on the web. Include information on the safety of web-based technologies vs. desktop technologies.
  5. Identify potential social media risks and describe ways to minimize them.

      About the Presenter:

      Susan C. Litton, Ph.D. is a practicing psychologist in Decatur, GA, and also the creator and driving force behind PSYBooks (, a practice management system/telemental health platform for mental health professionals. Susan is weird mix: passionate about both clinical work and technology, holding degrees in both fields. When the first practice management systems came out many years ago, Susan just HAD to have one. Over the years, she tried several, liked certain things about each but disliked other things. Fascinated by the possibilities, she eventually decided to build one herself, with the goal of making it so user-friendly it would practically teach itself, and so feature-rich, it would have everything a mental health clinician might need. PSYBooks launched on July 7, 2014, as a full-fledged EHR and is continually adding new features to also become have a complete Patient Portal for those providing telemental health services.
