520    Each chapter in The Counselor and the Law has been updated
       to reflect changes in the 2014 ACA Code of Ethics, 
       findings of recent court cases, and new federal and state 
       legislation. Attorney Nancy Wheeler and Burt Bertram, a 
       private practitioner and counselor educator, provide a 
       comprehensive overview of the law as it pertains to 
       counseling practice; an in-depth look at counselors' legal
       and ethical responsibilities; and an array of risk 
       management strategies.   This edition contains a 
       thoroughly updated chapter on distance counseling, 
       technology, and social media; regulatory updates to the 
       HIPAA and the HITECH Act; and recent case law developments
       regarding legal risks for counselor educators. The issues 
       surrounding civil malpractice liability, licensure board 
       complaints, confidentiality, duty to warn, suicide and 
       threats of harm to self, professional boundaries, records 
       and documentation, and managing a counseling practice are 
       also addressed in detail
