Ethics for Occupational Therapists
Bill Asenjo, PhD, CRC; Linda Bagby, OTR Ethics for Occupational Therapists is a 3-hour online
continuing education course that teaches OTs how to handle ethical and moral dilemmas in practice. Ethical
and moral issues pervade our lives, especially in the healthcare arena. Occupational therapists are
frequently confronted with a variety of ethical and moral dilemmas, and their decisions can have long-range
effects both professionally and personally. Why does one decision win out over another? What does the
decision process involve? How do these decisions impact those involved? This course will address these
questions from the framework of ethical decision models and the American Occupational Therapy
Association's Code of Ethics.
Cyberbullying is a 2-hour online continuing education (CE/CEU) course that reviews evidenced-based
research for identification, management and prevention of cyberbullying in children, adolescents and
adults. Bullies have moved from the playground and workplace to the online world, where anonymity can
facilitate bullying behavior. Cyberbullying is intentional, repeated harm to another person using
communication technology. It is not accidental or random. It is targeted to a person with less perceived
power. This may be someone younger, weaker, or less knowledgeable about technology. Any
communication device may be used to harass or intimidate a victim, such as a cell phone, tablet, or
computer. Any communication platform may host cyberbullying: social media sites (Facebook, Twitter),
applications (Snapchat, AIM), websites (forums or blogs), and any place where one person can

communicate with - or at - another person electronically. The short and long-term effects of bullying are
considered as significant as neglect or maltreatment as a type of child abuse. This course will describe
specific cyberbullying behaviors, review theories that attempt to explain why bullying happens, list the
damaging effects that befall its victims, and discuss strategies professionals can use to prevent or manage
identified cyberbullying. Cyberbullying is a fast-growing area of concern and all healthcare professionals
should be equipped to spot the signs and provide support for our patients and clients, as well as keep up
with the technology that drives cyberbullying.
Medical Marijuana
Medical Marijuana is a 3-hour online continuing education (CE) course that presents a summary of the
current literature on the various medical, legal, educational, occupational, and ethical aspects of marijuana.
In spite of the fact that nearly half of the states in this country have enacted legislation legalizing marijuana
in some fashion, the reality is that neither the intended "medical" benefits of marijuana nor its known (and
as yet unknown) adverse effects have been adequately examined using controlled studies. Conclusive
literature remains sparse, and opinion remains divided and contentious.This course will address the major
questions about marijuana that are as yet unanswered by scientific evidence. What are the known medical
uses for marijuana? What is the legal status of marijuana in state and federal legislation? What are the
interactions with mental health conditions like anxiety, depression, and suicidal behavior? Is marijuana
addictive? Is marijuana a gateway drug? What are the adverse consequences of marijuana use? Do state
medical marijuana laws increase the use of marijuana and other drugs? The course will conclude with a list
of implications for healthcare and mental health practitioners.
