Summary
    Ethics and Risk Management in Online and Distance Behavioral Health identifies pertinent ethical challenges and ethically related risk-management issues that practitioners should consider when using digital technology to assist clients in need. The text illuminates how the use of technology is influenced by traditional ethics concepts, including informed consent, boundaries, conflicts of interest, electronic records, collegial relationships, and other issues.

    The text begins by discussing how practitioners today are leveraging technology to provide services to clients and the importance of continually considering the ethical issues involved in using such communication methods. It addresses the specific ethical issues involved in online counseling, telephone counseling, self-guided web-based interventions, smartphone apps, electronic social networks, and other forms of digital communication. Ethical, regulatory, and practice standards are covered, as well as challenges in integrated health and behavioral health educational settings. The final chapter is dedicated to preventing and managing ethical and legal risk.

    Ethics and Risk Management in Online and Distance Behavioral Health is an ideal textbook for use by students and practitioners in the counseling professions, including clinical social work, clinical psychology, mental health counseling, marriage and family therapy, and substance use disorders counseling.
