In order to successfully practice in 2010 and beyond, therapists and counselors must understand and learn to navigate the technological complexities of our time.

One of the most important issues of our time is how technology affects psychotherapy and counseling. As members of a tech-driven culture, clients and practitioners alike are affected. Increasing numbers of clients receive or send texts during sessions and a growing number of clients prefer texts or email in between sessions to the more traditional phone call. Families face increasing tension and conflict around children's computer and technology use, over-use, abuse and addiction.
