In graduate school and supervised concurrent or post-graduate training, most behavioral health professionals learn the skills that they need to work with clients to promote positive behavioral outcomes. When those professionals decide that they want to start their own private practice, agency, or consulting group, many may lack the skills necessary to properly represent themselves and their work on the internet. A good first impression and an easy to use, attractive, and frequently updated website that reflects your professional services is part of developing an online persona that is appealing to consumers. Nevertheless, ethics and security should be the first thing a professional considers when developing and maintaining their website. Participants will leave the event prepared to create and maintain a website that promotes their behavioral health services while adhering to the ethical guidelines and standards of major organizations that represent behavioral health professionals.
