Guidelines for the Use of Social Media by Psychologists

Guidelines for the Use of Social Media by Psychologists in Practice and by Psychology Regulatory Bodies

Please note the following message from NSBEP:

At this time, NSBEP is providing a resource document regarding the use of social media by psychologists developed by the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards. This document may be helpful in highlighting some of the issues that arise when working with social media. Please note that NSBEP has NOT yet approved these as official NSBEP guidelines as they will require thorough review. As is always the case, following NSBEP Standards and the Code of Ethics will take precedence over any resource document or set of guidelines.

The Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards (ASPPB) is the alliance of state, provincial, and territorial agencies responsible for the licensure and certification of psychologists throughout the United States and Canada. The ASPPB Social Media Task Force has developed Guidelines for the Use of Social Media by Psychologists in Practice and by Psychology Regulatory Bodies are now accessible on the ASPPB webpage at, https://www.asppb.net/page/SMGuidelines. These social media Guidelines were developed for use by psychology regulatory bodies in their efforts to ensure that their publics are being well-served and to provide guidance to the profession when using social media, and to inform them about regulatory expectations for that use.

APNS has joined with the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) and the Council of Professional Associations of Psychologists (CPAP) on a Nanos Research survey to gauge the impact of COVID-19 on Canadians ability to access mental health care during the COVID-19 pandemic.
