Mental health providers are increasingly interested and implementing technology for training, practice, supervision, and other professional services. This article focuses on expanding practitioners’ understanding of the effects of using third-party platforms/programs with consumers (e.g., patients). Five ethical and legal vignettes are provided to help readers connect and conceptualize their own use of digital tools in areas of law, welfare, privacy and confidentiality, security, and boundaries.
