Fenichel - Myths of Internet-Based Counseling Even among mental health professionals who may be otherwise very like-minded about concepts and principles which guide traditional counseling/psychotherapy approaches, there are some specific areas of concern which continue to be hotly debated with regard to Internet-facilitated mental health services.

Grohol, Dr J. Best practices in e-therapy: Legal and licensing issues, 1999.

An introduction to the legal issues . First, let's be clear. Unlike other psychologists in this arena who pretend to be lawyers and make all sorts of pronouncements at professional conferences about what is and what is not legal, I am not a lawyer and don't pretend to be one. Take anything a non-lawyer has to say with a grain of salt and consult with your own legal counsel before acting on anything you read.

Munro, Kali Conflict in Cyberspace: How to Resolve Conflict Online, 2002.

Have you ever noticed how conflict can get blown out of proportion online?

What may begin as a small difference of opinion, or misunderstanding, becomes a major issue very quickly. Conflict can be difficult at the best of times, but what is it about online communication that seems to ignite “flaming” and make conflicts more difficult to resolve?

Suler, J. Psychological Dynamics of Online Synchronous Conversations in Text-Driven Chat Environments, 1997

TextTalk in online chat environments has evolved into a fascinating style of communication. In some ways, it is strikingly similar to face-to-face (ftf) dialogue. In other ways, it is quite unique. Many of its unique qualities revolve around the fact that it is an austere mode of communication. There are no changes in voice, no facial expressions, no body language, no (or very little) visual/spatial environment as a context of meaning. There's just typed words.
