Net Psy:
For Mental Health Professionals of All Disciplines


NetPsy is a forum for the discussion of the psychological and psychotherapeutic services delivered via all aspects of the Internet. It is not intended to be a replacement for psychotherapy or private consultation. Individuals needing professional advice are redirected to professionals in their local geographic area, to meet with them face - to - face and examine their problem with the proper attention it deserves. Net Psy is intended to serve as a loose "sounding board" for professionals to discuss issues not yet shown effective by research. It is not intended to offer direct advice to any individual. Non-professionals are only invited to participate with the above understanding.

Examples of relevant topics include the following:

  • Online ethics
  • Online demographics
  • Influences of the online community in the lives of users
    Both positive and negative
  • New additions to mental-health terminology
  • Symbols related to affective expressions
  • New behavioral patterns online
  • Influences of current and innovative forms of online technology
    Both positive and negative
  • Innovative uses of online technology to treat disorders as classified in DSM-IV
  • Reviews of resource sites, newsletters, and mail groups related to mental health online
  • Short editorials or comments on various topics of relevance to psychology online
  • The effects of not having visual or auditory feedback in interpersonal communications
    Both group and individual 
  • Does projection play a greater role in net communications
Subscribers exchange suggestions, expertise, mistakes, successes, and ideas about developing mental-health related products and services on and off the Net.
