Abstract

This study examined the influences of age, gender and years of experience on the perception
of e-psychotherapy among clinical psychologists within South Eastern Nigeria. 51 practicing
clinical psychologists (26 males and 25 females) within the age range of 28 to 56 years (M =
42.37, SD= 5.56) were used for the study. An e-psychotherapy scale was employed to elicit
data for the study. The survey research design, independent sample t-test and Analysis of
Variance were used for data collations and analysis. The findings revealed that South-East
clinical psychologists significantly have a positive perception of e-psychotherapy and gender
and years of practice have significant influence on e-Psychotherapy. However, age influence
on e-psychotherapy did not reach a statistical significance. It is, therefore, recommended
that clinical psychologists in Nigeria would perform more effectively using e-psychotherapy.
