How many therapists have personal Facebook profiles?

August 18, 2011

A recent survey in the states revealed that only 22% of the Maryland Psychiatric Society had a social media profile. Some psychotherapists too are wary of setting up a presence on Facebook or similar sites.

Your friends are on Facebook, your patients are on Facebook, and they talk about their interactions during sessions. Even your mother is on Facebook. If you’re like most psychiatrists, you’re not on Facebook. A survey conducted by the Maryland Psychiatric Societyrevealed that only 22% of MPS members had Facebook or MySpace pages. Thirty-six percent said they limit their use of technology because they are psychiatrists.
