November 2, 2018 @ 8:15 pm - 9:15 pm GMT

Catherine Knibbs

Event Details


Cyberspace offers Counsellors, Psychotherapists and Psychologists a space to connect, advertise and work using the medium of technology. However this technology comes with risks and dangers for us as practitioners, from our own social media to cyber security. This is much more than GDPR and Facebook. Our privacy and our clients’ can be compromised if we don’t understand how cyberspace operates and how our presence in this space can affect us. Furthermore technology is in our practice and is exponentially growing and in line with Moore’s law you will be seeing issues that literature doesn’t currently prepare us for. Intrigued? Science faction is on its way and as practitioners we currently need to expand our horizons. The talk will give a brief overview of the issues we can face with q&a about any of this.
