Abstract

Online networking is a growing way of connecting with others, both personally and professionally. The purpose of this survey study was to gain information regarding the online professional networking practices between family therapists. To do this, a survey was administered to family therapists across the United States inquiring about the frequency with which they interact with other professionals via various forms of online communications. Demographics were reported with regard to what methods family therapists used to communicate with other therapists and how frequently. General and feminist-based implications for professional engagement, training, and ethics are provided.
