The current state of cyber-psychotherapy and the issues that psychotherapists need to be aware of as this method of delivering services continues to expand

Abstract

Cyber-therapy is a fast growing phenomenon in the field of psychotherapy, Internet sites are being established on a routine basis, most offering some form of therapy on a fee for service basis. Proponents of this method of delivering mental health services hold that the internet is a viable way to provide a range of psychotherapy services. However, opponents of e-therapy hold that too many legal and ethical issues make this particular practice unfathomable. Many of the psychotherapeutic governing bodies have developed ethical guidelines to assist cyber-therapists in the practice of e-therapy. However, there are several problematic issues that confound the practice of cyber-counseling. This article reviews the current state of cyber-psychotherapy and the issues that psychotherapists need to be aware of as this method of delivering services continues to expand. This article reviews the above issues related to cyber-psychotherapy.
