Assignment 2: Internet-Based Psychological Interventions

With so many individuals using the Internet today, the psychology
of the individual, the family, the community, and the society has
changed. Some might argue that the traditional psychological theories
cannot be applied and therefore psychology as an entire field needs to
be revamped to incorporate the impact and the application of internet
technology. As a student completing a bachelor’s degree in psychology,
your future career will undoubtedly incorporate the use of the Internet
in very new ways. Read the following article from the AUO Library:

Ritterband, L. M., Gonder-Frederick, L., Cox, D. J., Clifton, A. D., West,
 R. W., & Borowitz, S. M. (2003). Internet interventions: In review,
 in use, and into the future. Professional Psychology: Research and
 Practice, 34(5)
, 527-534.

Identify a problem area or psychological issue that could benefit
from the use of an internet intervention. Now, using what you learned
from the article, propose an internet intervention using the following
guidelines:

  1. What problem area would the internet intervention address?
  2. Provide a general description of the proposed internet intervention.
  3. How would the effectiveness of the proposed intervention be tested?
  4. What are any legal and ethical issues related to the proposed
    intervention? Include the specific APA ethical standard(s) in your
    response.

Internet therapies are a rapidly growing segment of psychotherapeutic
interventions used by clinicians today.  Telehealth, and other internet
programs are currently being used to treat a burgeoning number of
disorders from Major Depressive Disorder to
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.  Internet interventions allow
Psychologists to reach a greater number and diversity of clients than
was previously possible.  Individuals who live in rural areas, for
example, now may have greater access to care.  However, therapy
can be a very complex process which may or may not translate via the
internet.  Some models of therapy rely greatly on empathy and discussion
of behavioral observations which may prove difficult when the client is
not in the same room as the therapist.  Research
into the effectiveness of internet interventions is in its infancy so
it may take some time to know the efficacy of such treatments.
