Social Media is everywhere and in today's society we are constantly connected to and have access to a wide range of information. Adolescents are particularly vulnerable to the impact of social media on their day to day life. As mental health practitioners, social media can aid as well as hinder the therapeutic relationship as it intersects boundaries. This workshop will highlight the ethical concerns of social media in mental health practice specifically as it applies to adolescents and their families.

Learning Objectives:
1. Identify two potential areas of ethical concerns related to social media
2. List two ways in which social media impacts youth
3. List two ways in which social media may impact your work with parents of adolescent clients
4. Utilize a framework for considering ethical issues and boundaries in your work
5. Identify two ways to ethically integrate social media into your practice
