High-risk patients, often those with Axis II disorders, have always been difficult to manage but the internet poses new challenges for psychotherapists. Clinicians have said "I used to be worried about a malpractice suit now I am worried about a bad Yelp review". This panel presentation will explore how access to your personal information and negative consumer reviews can impact psychotherapy with patients and your practice.
1. Learn at least two ways patients may gain access to therapist's personal information through the internet and how this information can put therapists at risk.
2. Be able to name at least two strategies to minimize the disclosure of personal information on the internet.
3. Will be able to identify at least three strategies for avoiding and managing negative reviews posted by patients on blogs and consumer review sites.
4. How to conduct a sound clinical practice while being mindful of the very real threat the internet can pose.
