Sexting Behavior among College Students: Implications for College Clinicians
Hertlein, Katherine M.; Twist, Markie L. C.
Journal of College Student Psychotherapy, v31 n3 p215-230 2017
The practice of sexting is becoming increasingly common among college students but has the potential to both initiate productive interactions with others and interfere with relationship development. The purpose of this paper is to report on the findings of a study on sexting among college students and to provide a framework through which practitioners working with this population would be able to effectively intervene. Implications for clinical practice include more specific assessment questions for practitioners, focus on better managing riskier behavior, and guidance toward using technology in relationally responsible and supportive ways.
