Cognella Publishes Textbooks with Focus in Online and Distance Social Work and Behavioral Health
Dr. Frederic G. Reamer writes timely textbooks to enrich the practice of helping professionals
San Diego, CA – May 7, 2020 – Cognella is proud to announce the publication of Ethics and Risk Management in Online and Distance Social Work and Ethics and Risk Management in Online and Distance Behavioral Health. Written by Dr. Frederic G. Reamer, the textbooks identify pertinent ethical challenges and ethically related risk-management issues that social workers and behavioral health professionals should consider when using digital technology to assist those in need.
“Today’s social workers and behavioral health professionals face unprecedented challenges in their efforts to assist vulnerable people,” said Dr. Reamer. “COVID-19, in particular, has suddenly necessitated skilled delivery of virtual behavioral health services. Practitioners’ increasing use of online and digital technology has greatly expanded opportunities to serve people who struggle with mood disorders, anxiety, substance use disorders, and interpersonal conflict, among other challenges. Yet, these rich opportunities come with great responsibility. Practitioners must know how to use these technological innovations responsibly and ethically. Educators must teach students about the ethical and legal standards to which they will be held. I wrote these practical, user-friendly books with these goals in mind.”
Ethics and Risk Management in Online and Distance Social Work is currently available for purchase and course use. Ethics and Risk Management in Online and Distance Behavioral Health will publish in late May 2020.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has changed, and continues to change, the higher education landscape,” said Cognella CEO Bassim Hamadeh. “Despite these unpredictable times, Cognella remains committed to publishing engaging and effective learning materials to help individuals achieve their academic and professional goals. Dr. Reamer’s textbooks are immensely valuable in our current climate, and we’re thrilled to be able to assist students and helping professionals as they face the challenges and opportunities associated with online and distance work.”
