Webinar with Pauline Wallin, Ph.D.: Ethical Ways to Counteract Negative Reviews Online

Recorded Tues Dec 1, 2015

When people post negative reviews online, reputation management specialists advise business owners to counteract negative comments with positive ones, e.g., by asking for reviews and testimonials from satisfied customers. However, this is not allowed under most mental health professionals’ ethical codes.

So what can we do when we see negative or false comments about ourselves in Google search results or at one of the popular rating sites?

In this webinar you will learn what types of negative reviews can be removed, and how to request their removal. You will also learn several ways to mitigate the impact of negative reviews that cannot be removed.
