    I struggle with being able to afford these courses from Psychotherapy Networker, but this is an example why, in the end, I opt to take courses from you. This is one of the most relevant and useful CE courses I have had the privilege to attend. I am working with a 14-ear-old boy who has an intractable loathing for his mother. I find myself frequently puzzling over what I might do that could be helpful for him, as he has slid into the place of distance, anger, and silence. The specifics of wondering if there is any traction in our sessions, wondering if there is something wrong with my approach due to the sudden monosyllabic answers and long stretches of silence (we make art while this unfolds) are issues I ponder during and after sessions. I know he is having at least a very positive interaction with an adult female. My supervisor urges me to continue working with him, no matter what. His rage is so tangible. This webinar gave me hope and a willingness to just be in the room with him, encouraging him to pick his own music, to just sit and noodle around. I demonstrate my respect for him by conscious a willingness to not force him to talk feeling-talk or any other kind of chatting and to respect his righteously constructed boundaries. Yeah. I can now get the importance of just sitting in the room, making stuff, listening to his music. To contextualize my comments and experience, I am a 60-year-old LMSW who has lived the life of an artist, a rebel, and an advocate. Outsiders and "outlaws" do well with me, as they recognize a kindred spirit.

    I enjoyed this whole series, much to my surprise and joy. The session with Maheu was perhaps the session most valuable to me, as I anticipate having a large telemental health practice. It just seems like the tsunami moving us into the rapidly changing landscape of our profession. So am I understanding correctly that Mahieu has online training available for using technology in our practices?

    Sorry that this is so many days after this session. My malpractice insurance is held by my supervisor, who is also the person who runs the organization where I work. Therefore, I am unfamiliar with the way malpractice insurance works. What does it mean to make sure that our malpractice insurance covers our licensing board?
    Thanks,

    To my surprise, following Session 1, I could not wait to attend the next ethics webinar. I would not have thought that possible. Zur's specifics on dual relationships, Internet office policies and statements, and dealing with digital native clients clarified issues I have been ruminating about since I set forth from graduate school. I particularly appreciated his insights and comments about the "Dont-don't-don't" reactions from more rigid interpreters of standards. Ethics are a combination of facts, knowledge, experiential knowledge- but most important, the careful continuing considerations of the Wise Mind. Tina LeMarque-Denison, MA, MSW, LMSW, Tucson, Arizona

    I, too, would find smaller quizzes more useful right after each webinar, It helps me process, digest, and retain the material that was most important to me.

    Wow. This was infinitely more useful than reading the NASW Code of Ethics or discussing these issues in the classroom. As promised, this segment of your ethics course was right to the point, getting to issues and transactions that I already face frequently as a Social Worker in my first year-and-a-half of practice. I am thrilled that I signed up for this series. I found that Rich's interviewing techniques, especially asking for the kind of dialogue Mary Jo might use were invaluable.
