Reviews

“What Bauman and Rivers achieve particularly successfully in this book is their ability to apply these theories to the realities of the online world. Anyone from a professor, to a clinician, to a parent can gleam tips and usefulness from this book.” (Beatrice Hayes, International Journal of Emotional Education, Vol. 12 (1), 2020)

“Book encompasses the pros and cons of mental health on the Internet with scholarly discussions about treatment, research and ethics, risks in cyberspace, social networking, friendships and social interactions, virtual worlds, and representing ‘the self’ online. … a textbook that would be appropriate for courses that focus on utilization of technology in education, psychology, and mental health. … the basis of the book has a broad appeal to all consumers on the Internet, including parents, novices, and ‘digital immigrants.’” (Mary Fukuyama, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 61 (20), May, 2016)
