Live Webinar: Ethical Considerations for Incorporating Artificial Intelligence in Mental Healthcare
Saturday September 9th, 2023 from 2:00 PM to 5:15 PM
3 Ethics CEUs

With the rising popularity and accessibility of artificial intelligence, such ChatGPT and Midjourney, AI is becoming a commonly used tool. Advancements in the technology have also led to the development of AI applications, software, and programs that can be used in the counseling setting. While AI may be used to improve access to mental healthcare, assist in diagnostical decision-making, and document sessions, there can also be a number of ethical risks when using AI in therapy. From black-box decision-making and data bias, to preliminary research and patients' rights, there is much a therapist should consider before deciding to incorporate the technology into session. Join Hayley Twyman Brack, MA, LPC, as she explores these concepts and more in this ethics training.
