    Another interesting webinar. Since I am a Canadian Practitioner I found too much time was spent during the first discussing state and fedederal law re disclosure. I would have appreciate a short statement regarding making sure that as a practitioner you check federal, state/provincial legislation re disclosure. I found the second half of the webinar very informative.
    Thank you

    Very interesting webinar. I enjoyed very much the cases discussed. I also found that the first part of the presentation was very comprehensive, but because it varies from state to state, it could have been summarized. I would like to hear Dr Reammers thoughts about meeting clients outside the therapy without anticipating it room when you live in small communities. For example meeting a client at a social event (wedding, birthday etc).

      This is an area I am also interested in. Another dimension of that is living in a small community where one’s spouse is a fairly public figure and encounters/befriends clients and then wants to encourage friendship with those clients. (Let’s have X over for dinner) This has happened several times and has been very tricky to negotiate.

    Thank you so much for your insights. I am not a fan of technology and have limited skill with it. However I travel a lot and so do some of my clients, we continue our sessions on Skype or phone. I only do this with clients I have known for years not new referrals. I would like to use some other vehicle than Skype which I find to be inefficient but do not want to use a social media site like Facebook or Google. What sites are more secure and reputable for teleconferencing? I am licensed in California and my clients are California residents altho we are often in other countries when we converse.

    Dr Reamer,
    Any thoughts on having a separate smartphone just for clinical
    practice? I do this. If a client reveals clinically relevant info via
    text, I document it in the record. I am also able to drag and drop
    clinically significant emails into the client file since I use
    an electronic record (an example would be a lengthy history the client

    Another question you may not have heard before: I do performance enhancement work
    with professionals such as athletes, actors, dancers, musicians,
    stand up comics in a city where the arts attract a great of tourism.
    What if I felt our work would be enhanced by me attending
    a live performance? Reasons for -would be so I could get a better
    idea of the setting, artist/audience relationship, artist confidence level,
    etc. I haven’t done this yet but can foresee that the need might arise and it
    might help me as the therapist to better serve the client.
