This webinar explores the ethical dilemma that social workers and other school-based mental health professionals face between providing continuing service to students and feeling like a novice when it comes to doing so via electronic communication. It identifies the psychosocial effects of a quarantine on students and their families, and provides ethical guidance as professionals meet their responsibilities to clients, colleagues, and society.
