Cyber counseling?

Cybercounseling? Why not? We have a plethora of cyber-fill in the blank....cyber dating; distance education; tele-medicine; tele-conferencing; chatting; and my personal favorite.. blogging in cyberspace.

I'm sure the same laws and ethics apply to those who offer these services via the internet, but always remember, caveat emptor-- let the buyer beware. Check out this website that offers cybercounseling.

The American Psychotherapy Association, although not against cybercounseling, has some concerns regarding laws, but more so, ethics.
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.

I feel that friends and family tend to make the best counselors. They know more about our upbringing and our daily lives than a psychiatrist that sees you for one hour a week.

Advice online--seems fine to me. I read plenty of blogs where people are giving each other advice. It's just to figure out what's best for you based on the information given.
