The 21st century has brought with it rapid advancement in the fields of technology and the growth of social media and smartphone applications. The Millennial and Generation Z clients one might interact with have grown up with access to technology at their fingertips. According to Qualman (2016), 53% of millennials would rather lose their sense of smell than their technology and more people own a mobile device than a toothbrush.

As counselors in the 21st century, we must evolve with the times as well. With the rise of telehealth and the evolution of our profession’s ethical guidelines to include technology, counselors need to be thoughtful about their practice – from marketing materials to client interaction and precautions to take. This webinar on Counseling in the Digital Age will discuss such ethical considerations as one’s personal and professional social media presence to the cultural competency of using smartphone applications to help clients’ progress.

Learning Objectives:

1. Attendees will understand the numerous ethical considerations with regards to the utilization of technology.

2. Attendees will be able to evaluate through the use of an ethical decision making model how to navigate technology considerations.
3. Attendees will be given practical applications for the utilization of technology within their practice.
4. Attendees will be challenged to explore their beliefs, values, and biases regarding the utilization of technology within their practice.
