TILT – Therapeutic Innovations in Light of Technology

Hi Eve ry o n e!

In each issue of TILT we shall be presenting an ethical dilemma about a Web 2.0 experience and other ethical topics related to mental health and technology, and inviting readers to comment at the Online Therapy Institute’s social network. In the following issue of TILT, we shall publish a selection of comments about what YOU would do when faced with the dilemma, as well as our own considerations about what the issues are.

What Would You Do? dilemma You have been seeing your client for a few months and he discusses his blog frequently. You have his explicit permission to view the blog and have done so in the past, both feeling comfortable with the content and the boundaries surrounding discussing therapy on it. At the end of the last session, your client seemed uncomfortable, edgy and worried. He states “perhaps you should visit my blog again…” As agreed within the contract, you do so and while nothing your client has said about the therapy may be considered damning or destructive to the relationship and the therapy, you discover that it has been linked to by many mental health sites and gone viral, inviting thousands of comments, many of which are defamatory.

What would you do?! Weigh in at the OTI Social Network’s Discussion Forum! http://onlinetherapyinstitute.ning.com/forum/
