Title: Utilizing Social Media to Aid in the Dissemination of Information to the General Public

Abstract: The rapid rise of social media over the past decade has created numerous potential benefits to clinical psychologists, including increased ease in connecting and collaborating professionally with the media as well as increased opportunities for direct-to-consumer (DTC) marketing – both of which can aid in the dissemination of information to the general public. However, despite the fact that Internet users continue to spend more time with social media sites than any other type of site, many psychologists have been slow to embrace this movement and, as a result, now feel anxious, confused, and overwhelmed when they think about getting started (i.e., what we might think of as social media phobia)! These feelings appear to be connected to an unfamiliarity about how it all works (e.g., the websites and the technology behind them) and an uncertainty about the potential benefits of using this technology.  As a result, this webinar will seek to help attendees treat their social media phobia by providing an overview of the social media movement, reviewing the major social media websites, addressing the ethical issues and risks involved, providing examples of the potential benefits, and offering guidance, tips, and examples of how to get started on various social media platforms. 

Learning Objectives:

Understand how the major social media websites can impact broader psychological practice

Understand the ethics and risks involved in using social media websites

Review guidelines on how to get started in building a social media presence
