“Technology can offer challenges and opportunities for the private practitioner. This chapter first explores how psychotherapists of different ages experience boundaries and the Internet. The discussion progresses to methods of integrating technology assessment and digital testing and the impact of technology on the management of a private practice. Digital options per se are not unethical or inappropriate. Each area is viewed through a risk management and strengths lens. The intent is to guide the psychotherapist through potential complication of digital options while emphasizing the ways in which technology can ease the management of a private practice.”
I wrote this chapter to help clinicians adapt the technical challenges of practicing psychotherapy in today’s rapidly changing world. This book is available on Google Books and Amazon.
