Course Description: Technological innovation is leading to rapid change in many professions including psychology. A growing number of patients are seeking online psychotherapy. Consequently, it is imperative for therapists to understand the associated risks and benefits. Greater personalized care, adherence to patient compliance, and patient empowerment are identified treatment advantages. Conversely, the disadvantages include a lack of data security, boundary issues, and a loss of therapeutic control. A summarization of ethical arguments for and against online psychotherapy should help practitioners decide if they’d like to offer this form of treatment.
