Ethical and competent practice in the online age

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticleOther

Abstract

Most psychologists practising today use email for professional communication, electronically store client details and use a diary on their smartphone/tablet. Psychologists are also using social media (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, blogs, YouTube) for a range of professional and personal tasks such as public education, professional networking or personal communication. Even those psychologists who do not use these technologies will probably interact with clients and professionals who do. These technologies have the potential to increase the efficiency and reach of psychologists, but do raise additional ethical concerns.
