students are active on social networking sites and want to maintain contact via text, cell phone, Twitter or
Facebook. What are your thoughts about conducting therapy via the internet? How would you approach a

Should students and therapists communicate via social networking sites or via Skype? What are the
ethical considerations involved in online therapy and counseling? Paper must be 4 pages and include two
peer reviewed resources (not more than 5 years old)
