Social Media Policies and Guidelines

If you don’t have a social media policy, consider these guidelines provided by the Severson Center resources (attached below):

ASHA’s Social Media Guidelines for ASHA Employees discusses
the importance of social media and provides guidelines for which
employees can speak for the organization through social media
sites.

The Ethical Framework for the Use of Technology in Mental
Health from the Online Therapy Institute
deals with online client-
counselor relationships, including the ethics of accepting online
friend requests from clients.

The Fellowship Church policy offers guidelines for boundaries.
The policy focuses on blogs that, even if for personal use, are
viewed as an extension of the church—all employees are
viewed, according to the church, as an extension of the
Fellowship Church.

De Paul University also offers Social Media Guidelines that are
grouped into three areas: general recommendations, when
posting from De Paul, and when using a personal site.
