Time sure flies! And it is time for an update.
Havana Wellness Studio and Online Therapy Institute, in partnership with The Institute for Life Coach Training have updated the Ethical Framework for the Use of Technology in Coaching. We are introducing the updated framework as a White Paper entitled, Ethical Framework for Technology-delivered Coaching.
The Ethical Framework for the Use of Technology in Coaching was originally published in 2011. Now, eight years later, we offer this updated White Paper. Technology changes happen rapidly so realizing that, and knowing that more and more coaches are using technology to deliver services, this updated framework is both timely and necessary. Professional coaching organizations create and update codes of ethics but to date, these organizations have not incorporated the use of technology into the codes or guidelines to reflect best practice. This ethical framework is offered as a point of reference for governing bodies, certifying organizations, and the professional coaches these bodies and organizations represent.
We will disseminate the framework to major coaching organizations over the next few weeks and months and we have a free conference call scheduled for Apr. 16th, Tuesday, 3:00pm EDT . In the meantime, if you would like a copy of the framework just sign up below and you will be directed to the White Paper.
My career has largely been about the delivery of therapy and coach services via technology and that passion still exists. While you may see my other efforts here at Havana Wellness Studio, rest assured, I am keeping my finger on the pulse of technology-delivered services.
And oh, by the way, stay tuned for our forthcoming book, Coaching Online: A Practical Guide to be published by Routledge in 2020.
