Identify and discuss the benefits of internet use in psychology

Question Description

I need help with a question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.

With so many individuals using the Internet today, the psychology of the individual, the family, the community, and the society has changed. Some might argue that the traditional psychological theories cannot be applied and therefore psychology as an entire field needs to be revamped to incorporate the impact and the application of internet technology. As a student completing a bachelor’s degree in psychology, your future career will undoubtedly incorporate the use of the Internet in very new ways. Read the following article:

Ritterband, L. M., Gonder-Frederick, L., Cox, D. J., Clifton, A. D., West,
 R. W., & Borowitz, S. M. (2003). Internet interventions: In review,
 in use, and into the future. Professional Psychology: Research and
 Practice, 34(5)
, 527-534.

Identify a problem area or psychological issue that could benefit from the use of an internet intervention. Now, using what you learned from the article, propose an internet intervention using the following guidelines:

  1. What problem area would the internet intervention address?
  2. Provide a general description of the proposed internet intervention.
  3. How would the effectiveness of the proposed intervention be tested?
  4. What are any legal and ethical issues related to the proposed intervention? Include the specific APA ethical standard(s) in your response.
