    Well, two down, four to go. Both the first two sessions exceeded my expectations. Having been in field a long time, with an interest in behavioral ethics (I’ve chaired Ethics Committees in hospital and social services agencies), these sessions present refreshing commentary that seem to drag us (some kicking and screaming) into the new world of our profession. Congrats, and I look forward to the next sessions.

    Question for Cliff: You noted that you might decide to disclose a circumstance relating to public safety knowing that,at least in part, a jury would be unlikely to convict you if this risk was substantive. I agree. But if the circumstance do not rise to the standard of violating confidentiality as described by your state licensing board, isn’t the question not whether a jury would convict, but rather, would your licensing board revoke your license if your client filed a complaint?

    Second: I’m wondering about reporting requirements, ethical and legal, as they pertain to former clients? Recently, an agency received a letter from an incarcerated adult, alleging sexually abuse by a former agency employee while in care some 10 years previously. The letter also threatened legal action unless the agency would come to a settlement. In your view, would the agency, or clinician at the agency who received the letter, have an obligation to report to child protective authorities and/or have a responsibility to respond to the letter?

    Some brave, and thought compelling ideas about using technology to assist in therapy. It was confusing, however, in the end about whether you believe it ok to accept Facebook friend requests from clients. There was something if your page is professional, but didn’t get the point about if you have a dual relationship.

    On the tele health section, didn’t hear you talk about the certification that is available for licensed clinicians- Distance Certified Counselor. This includes many of the training points you talked about in your presentation.
