Content By: Fiske, A., Henningsen, P., & Buyx, A. (2019). Your robot therapist will see you now: Ethical implications of embodied artificial intelligence in psychiatry, psychology, and psychotherapy. Journal of Medical Internet Research, 21 (5), e13216.

Course Description: Increasing evidence supports the integration of embodied artificial intelligence (AI) into mental health services. However, in order to successfully and responsibly implement AI services into psychotherapeutic settings, the ethical and social implications of its use must be considered. Embodied AI applications show promise in assisting clinicians across mental health settings, per a thematic literature search. Yet, the research has failed to examine the ethical issues of implementing AI programs as a treatment resource. Specific challenges are identified and discussed along with recommendations for ethical integration of embodied AI into mental health treatment across settings and populations.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe how artificial intelligence has been used in the treatment and management of depression, dementia, and autism spectrum disorders
  2. Explain the risks and benefits in applying embodied artificial intelligence into existing mental health services
  3. List three recommendations for advancing the ethical use of artificial intelligence in psychotherapeutic settings

Course Outline:

  • Read and understand Your robot therapist will see you now: Ethical implications of embodied artificial intelligence in psychiatry, psychology, and psychotherapy
  • Review the Course Description and Learning Objectives
  • Reflect on the ethical issues facing the implementation of embodied artificial intelligence as part of the therapeutic process across disparate mental health problems
  • Work through the post-test questions; keep in mind that answer selections should be derived from the respective article
  • Return to the referenced article for any missed questions and/or to better understand the ethical considerations of adapting artificial intelligence as a tool in psychotherapy
