Mental Health Counseling Learners, address the following: The county mental health services department where you work has initiated a distance counseling option to increase access to residents who live in more rural areas of the county that are underserved. You are being asked to run a virtual support group for new parents. Your director has suggested that you use a live chat at set times to facilitate this group. Explain the challenges you will need to address to establish relationships with group members.
School Counseling learners, address the following: Your school is establishing a new page on the school website to combat cyber-bullying. In addition to educational materials, a staff member proposes that there will be a link to open a chatbox that the school counselors will monitor. You recognize that this unsecured mode of communication will pose many ethical challenges. Explain this to the principal and explain how another option, such as secure email, may be more appropriate.ï»¿ï»¿
