Presenting a one-day, six-hour ethics conference in advanced supervisory ethics. This conference will address 1) the ethical complexities of providing supervision via teleconferencing, including technical and security issues related to the protection of client privacy and confidentiality under HIPAA and the Hi-Tech Act of 2010, and 2)  a detailed overview of privacy concerns and solutions in the era of e-communications so that supervisors are prepared to instruct their supervisees in the legal and ethical use of smart phones, email and other emerging modes of communication in ways that meet guidelines under HIPAA and the Hi-Tech Act of 2010. This program has been designed to provide 3 hours of training for LCSW and LMFT supervisors who wish to supervise via teleconferencing, six hours of supervisory ethics to meet the ethics requirements towards the CPCS for professional counseling supervision, and the ethics requirements for all licensees seeking relicensure. This training will include experiential exercises and scenario analysis to integrate the legal knowledge into ethical practice, facilitated by Charles D. Safford, LCSW, President,
