Definition: Internet Counseling is performed when a licensed mental health professional
engages in the process of therapy using email, online voice, online type or online
video as means of communication. This counseling may be considered Internet Christian
Counseling when clients and therapists agree to hold to and use common Christian values.
These values result from and adhere to the facts taught by Jesus Christ and the other
Scripture writers forming a Christian worldview that guides decision-making. Resources,
books, videos, articles, etc., from other Christian authors may also be used in therapy.
The therapist, especially, should have an education in Christian Theology. Internet
Catholic Counseling is when the therapist and client agree to adhere to Catholic Truths
as taught by the Magisterium. The therapist understands the major role that these
Truths play in daily living. The therapist also has training in Catholic Theology.
The client must also have some understanding of these truths or at least the openness
to learn them. These truths will permeate many of the topics discussed during counseling.
Catholic resources, books, videos, articles, etc., from other Catholic/Christian authors
that adhere to the Magisterial Truths may also be used in therapy.
