Dr. Keely Kolmes is one of the most extensively cited authorities on the interplay between social media and clinical practice. Their widely circulated social media policy has served as the starting point for thousands, if not tens of thousands of clinicians worldwide. They are also on the forefront of research on client-therapist encounters on social media. Thus, it should come as no surprise that they have also become one of the most highly sought speakers and experts on these topics.  Their grounding workshops explore the interplay between the sharing world of internet life and the deeply private space of clinical practice. These are dynamic issues where there are no easy solutions and many potentially “right” answers. Dr. Kolmes is adept at exploring these complex issues in their engaging, yet down to earth style. Attendees leave their workshops wiser and better prepared for the changes that face us all as our social worlds continue to change.
