Counseling and Social Services

Effective and Professional Use of Social Media

Social media can be a great thing. It helps you keep in contact with friends and family across the globe, you can find out about events going on in your area, and you are frequently “in the know” when things happen in your workplace or with a colleague. Occasionally, this real-time, sometimes unfiltered, information has led to social media mistakes that lead to hasty firings and individuals who instantly regret their tweets and posts.

This course will explore the effective use of social media including the pitfalls of using social media, online image, confidentiality, and workplace expectations.

This course will award 1 continuing education hour.  Please see the board approvals below.
