Course Description:
This program focuses on the challenges facing us in a world where boundaries are loosened and technological developments allow for forms of therapy that are not always conducted face-to face.  In addition, this program focuses on what it truly means to be an ethical therapist, not merely one who merely follows the codes or rules.
