Intake Paperwork + Social Media PolicyOct 25, 2021
Let’s face it, your clients look you up online. Often, clients will do this before they even set foot in your office. Therefore, it’s your responsibility to navigate your social media boundaries right away. I suggest discussing your social media policy with clients in your very first session.
Also consider including your social media policy in your intake packet so that your clients aren’t offended if they send you a friend/follow request.
Check out my private practice policy below:
Due to the importance of your confidentiality and the importance of minimizing dual relationships, I do not accept friend or contact requests from current or former clients on any social networking site (Facebook, LinkedIn, etc). I believe that adding clients as friends or contacts on these sites can compromise your confidentiality and our respective privacy. It may also blur the boundaries of our therapeutic relationship. If you have questions about this, please bring them up when we meet and we can talk more about it.
