E-Mail and Ethical Issues
Bradley, Loretta J.; Hendricks, Bret
Family Journal: Counseling and Therapy for Couples and Families, v17 n3 p267-271 2009
The proliferation of the use of e-mail and texting has created some ethical dilemmas for family counselors. Although e-mail can expand and encourage communication, it is not problem free and, in fact, can pose problems. There are issues with privacy, confidentiality, and maintaining an appropriate professional relationship. Family counselors should be aware of the promises and pitfalls in using e-mail and related technologies.
