Workshop Description:

Did you know that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is now considered part of Telemental Health? As AI becomes an integral part of therapeutic practices, it's crucial to understand its role and implications within the digital therapeutic space. We begin by describing how this modern tool is reshaping therapy delivery. Our discussion extends to the ethical considerations surrounding AI integration, critically examining how its use can have both positive and negative impacts on clients and therapists. We aim to navigate these complexities thoughtfully, ensuring that practitioners can leverage AI's benefits while mitigating potential drawbacks.

Participants will also gain hands-on experience in utilizing AI to craft treatment plans, diagnoses, and progress notes. We'll demonstrate methods to harness AI's capabilities in a way that upholds confidentiality and the standard of care, ensuring that these digital advancements serve to enhance, rather than compromise, therapeutic integrity.

Furthermore, the workshop will delve into the use of AI for generating website and blog content. Participants will learn strategies to produce informative and beneficial content for the public, all while carefully managing the risks of misinformation and biases inherent in AI-generated materials.

We'll also discuss the importance of transparency with clients regarding the use of AI in therapy, ensuring they are fully informed about how their care is supported by these technologies in your Informed Consent to Treatment.

This workshop is designed for mental health professionals keen on navigating the digital evolution of therapy with ethical consideration, practical skill, and an informed perspective on AI's role in enhancing therapeutic outcomes.

Presented by: Becky Beaton-York, Ph.D.

Dr. Beaton-York has provided behavioral health services since 1991, and she has a true passion for ethics. She's been on the Georgia Psychological Association's Ethics Committee since 2010 and their Ethics Chair for eight of those years. She was also the Ethics Chair for the Licensed Professional Counselor’s Association of Georgia (LPCA-GA) from 1999-2001. Early in her career, Dr. Beaton-York taught at Georgia State University and has been adjunct faculty for Emory's Department of Psychology since 2016, primarily providing ethics training for their faculty. She has also served as an ethics expert on several malpractice cases.

Dr. Beaton-York founded a large anxiety and OCD practice in Atlanta that she ran from 2004-2019 until she sold it. Many of her ethics examples come from these 15 years of managing up to 40 clinicians and answering ethical dilemmas nearly daily. She has also coached numerous group practice owners since 2010. Literally, she has taught tens of thousands of therapists how to manage ethical issues in one form or another for the past 25 years. In other words, navigating ethical dilemmas is Becky's jam. :-) Since she loves ethics, teaching, and mentoring, this inspired her to start The Knowledge Tree. Furthermore, Dr. Beaton-York was voted Counselor Educator of the Year by LPCA-GA in 2005 and received their Lifetime Achievement Award in 2015.

Lastly, you may have seen "Dr. Becky" on one of the 60 episodes that she filmed as the featured psychologist on TLC's "Hoarding: Buried Alive." She has also made appearances on The Anderson Cooper Show, Good Morning America, CNN Headline News, and other media.
