CSIRA POSITION PAPER ON PSYCHOLOGICAL TELE ASSESSMENT
Due to the present pandemic situation (COVID-19), strict confinement has been imposed in many countries and, whenever possible, in-presence face-to-face psychological services switched to remote interactions through the internet.
Ethical issues have to be raised, and answered:
- Are remote and virtual relationships equivalent to in-presence face-to-face relationships?
- Is this model of intervention equally efficient?
Recommendations to psychologists in face of the current pandemic situation caused by the virus COVID-19.
Announcement of the Comprehensive System International Rorschach Association (CSIRA/ARISI).
In the fight against the spreading of the virus, many governments in the world have recommended or decreed social distancing and/or confinement of their populations. This situation impacts many professions of service to the person, including psychologists.
