The Interface of Ethics and Technology

This event is in partnership with the National Association of Social Workers from the NASW 2014 National Conference.

The digital world has changed the face of social work practice.  Social networking, remote video interventions, and text-message and avatar counseling are but a few of the technological options being used by a growing number of contemporary social workers. The advent of online technology, digital communications, and distance service delivery has forced social workers to rethink the way they serve clients. Dr. Reamer will provide an overview of social work in the digital world and explore unprecedented and challenging ethical issues concerning the meaning of relationship in professional work, practitioner competence, privacy and confidentiality, and professional boundaries.​
