PRESENTATION:  This training is designed for clinicians at any skill level to explore and understand the pathological qualities unique to the Internet and its evolving hazards. During this training, participants will learn the brief history of the Internet and its likely future. Special emphasis will be placed on the co-occurring nature of Mental Health disorders and how the internet is being abused to negatively support these issues. Dangers to health, privacy, ethics, safety and child development will be explored. This new and powerful tool is affecting all of us in unpredicted and sometimes pathological ways. Our clients are living their lives on the Internet; we need to know what this means for them, and their recoveries.  As a result of attending this training participants will:
