Practitioner Heal Thy Self(ie); APA (Div. 46) Recommended Guidelines For Professional Online Engagement

The goal of this presentation is to provide and promote online and device/social media engagement awareness

Social media use and utilization can prove a slippery slope for anyone. For professionals especially, the appropriate, proper, smart, and safe limits of self-disclosure, boundaries, “sharing,” and even client contact can be even harder to identify, discern, and sustain. The goal of this presentation is to provide and promote online and device/social media engagement awareness, discuss ethical questions, and offer pragmatic, mindful, and intelligent guidelines for healthy professional (and personal) digital use and utilization, as well as the practice of “Good Digital Citizenship.” In addition, the co-chairs of the APA “Device Management & Intelligence” Committee (Div. 46), will present and discuss APA (Div. 46) recommended guidelines, tips, suggestions-and potential risks-regarding professional online social media engagement, offer suggestions and strategies for successful and intelligent online promotion for private practices, institutions, and organizations, and offer a Q&A to attendees.
