The Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards (ASPPB) is pleased to submit for your consideration and comment Guidelines for the Use of Social Media by Psychologists in Practice and by Psychology Regulatory Bodies. The guidelines were developed by the ASPPB Social Media Task Force (SMTF) and were recently approved by the ASPPB Board of Directors to go out for public comment. ASPPB has committed itself to providing member boards with useful resources that can aid its licensees in providing safe and competent services, and aid member boards in their work to meet the mandate of public protection. This document proposes a need for specific guidelines for the use of social media by psychologists in their professional practice as well as in their personal use of social media. The guidelines are also intended to aid member boards in the adjudication of complaints that involve social media use by psychologists. The guidelines were developed in consideration of, and to align with the ASPPB code of ethics, and with best practices identified in the current literature.

We are interested in your reactions, feedback, suggestions, and/or alternative ideas to all aspects of these current draft guidelines. Please use the link below to provide comments by June 28, 2020.
