offering therapy or diagnostic or other types of health services.”(p. 210). Website advertising can potentially lead to a violation of ethical standards because there are so many regulations and rules to follow and things are easily misinterpreted online by others. There are also a lot of fake advertisements on the internet and clients and other psychologists alike may not be able to tell the difference between real and fake. It is necessary to follow all standards if advertising online and be sure to use phrases and wordings that cannot be easily misunderstood or misinterpreted. References Fisher, C. B. (2017). Decoding the ethics code: a practical guide for psychologists (4th ed.). Los Angeles, CA: SAGE. 3 Thank you for your post. Fisher (2017) noted the importance of documenting incidential contact with clients (e.g., you run into them in a store or at church, etc.). Fisher (2017) strongly suggested "psychologists should always consider whether the particular nature of a professional relationship might lead to a client’s/patient’s misperceptions regarding an encounter. If so, it is advisable to keep a record of such encounters and discuss them with the client/patient when clinically indicated" (p. 130). Do you feel Fisher (2017) is on point or over-emphasizing this particular issue? Thank you again for your post! References

Fisher, C. B. (2017). Decoding the ethics code: a practical guide for psychologists (4th ed.). Los Angeles, CA: SAGE. I feel like the incident is only relevant if it ties into treatment or ongoing issues. If the patient is a kleptomaniac or hoarder and you spot her at the thrift store with a basket for of stuff. I would say document the encounter and bring it up at the next meeting. Was something triggering to them that sent them out to buy items? Did they fill up their cart and walk away. Is this there on form of therapy? If you spot them at church and it’s a quick wave or nod and everyone’s days goes on I do not see how it would tie into their treatment or need to document it. Again is this person suddenly joining your church, do you feel like this is a weird co-dependent move? Are you concerned they are stalking you? Then yes document. There are so many shades of grey when it comes to simple run ins with patients. 4 Re: Topic 6 DQ1 Hello, Sarah! Thank you for your post. As I was reading your thoughts, I was thinking about the medium upon which or through which we actually keep records. I was thinking, as you pointed out, there are ways we now store information digitally (like, "electronic call logs"). While technology is allowing us to work faster, more effectively, etc., it also creates the potential for disaster. Specifically, the potential for a data breach can put a client in harms way. There have been so many stories in recent years about global corporations serious about security and which have the resources to make data as secure as possible, but even they are getting hacked. When you think about all of the different agencies attempting to help clients and their diverse digital storage solutions, the possibility of a serious breach is constantly present. Unfortunately, more and more communication with clients happens via email, text, etc. With this in mind, what steps would you
