14 WHERE TO NEXT?
There is still more work to be done! Technology continues to evolve and there are, as yet, many un- answered questions. The Guidelines are a “living document” that require your input to remain rele- vant to the work we do as counsellors and psycho- therapists. Your feedback can be shared with the Executive of the Technology and Innovative Solutions Chapter by email using the “Contact the TIS Chapter President” feature on our Chapter page.
You can also join us for the Guidelines for the Uses of Technology in Counselling and Psychotherapy Webinar on July 19, 2019 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM EDT. This is free webinar for CCPA Members will answer questions about the newly launched Guide- lines and will also review the basic technological competencies and checklist for choosing technolo- gies. Reserve your spot now.
