Social Media: Benefits for Professional E-Networking

March 1, 2010

I am excited to be presenting on “Social Media and Its Benefits for Professional E- Networking” at the First Annual Therapist Resource Telesummit being held March 12-14, 2010.  Experts in the field will share with therapists how to create a successful therapy business and tools they can use to do this!  This telesummit is not to be missed if you are interested in developing your own therapy business or want new ideas and resources to enhance its success. I invite you to join me and over 10 other expert speakers for this complementary program. Over these three days, you will have access to some incredible information on how to create an authentic and profitable therapy business.

My presentation will highlight the potential and benefits for therapists interested in using the Internet for professional networking to enhance their career, strengthen support, as well as discuss how social media can promote our work and bring therapists together in a global web community to share experiences, exchange ideas, and collaborate on projects.  My community organizing with the Art Therapy Alliance will also be highlighted.  To learn more or to register, click on the box below or follow this link.

    The idea of therapists and the internet keeps popping up in my classes. It’s been a back and forth discussion between classmates and faculty. The pros, the cons, and all that gray area.

    The con that sticks out more often in these discussions has to do with boundaries and making sure the boundary between client and therapist are upheld since the internet is accessible to anyone.

    It’s an interesting battle, and some of the most negative feedback I’ve experienced has to do with Facebook.

    Sometimes I need reassurance about having an online presence. At times I’m left feeling embarrassed or ashamed of using the internet to build a social network within this field, but I continue onward because of inspiration like this.

    Thanks Gretchen. It’s taken me years to find the presence of art therapists on the internet.
