You have a friend request... Now what?

ACA has entered the Blogosphere… Twitter has dominated the headlines… and Facebook is the right of passage in a growing Internet generation. A few days ago during an open ethics discussion in one of the courses I teach, a school counseling student asked the question, “What are your thoughts on accepting students as friends on facebook?” This simple question evolved into a lengthy discussion that included everything from professional responsibility to how this generation of students has no idea of the impact their “cyber lives” have on their “real ones.”

The conversation got me wondering… “What would you do?”

Future Counselor Educators… Would you friend your Masters and Doctoral students?

Future School Counselors… Would you friend your students?

Future Counselors of all specializations… If a client, patient, or colleague requested you as a friend, would you?
