A Word on Telepractice

Supervision and New Rules

Professionals who provide service via the Internet or other electronic means should provide as much information as possible to individuals who access their services. At a minimum, the psychologist should prominently disclose:

  • Name and location of the psychologist
  • Type of license and jurisdiction where licensed
  • What the psychologist is licensed and trained to do
  • To whom the client may make a complaint and how
  • The limits and limitations of Internet practice/service delivery

This is not unlike the disclosure we require of psychologists and other mental health providers in face-to-face settings, and it is just as important.
