Cybersupervision: Conducting Supervision on the Information Superhighway.
Coursol, Diane
The internship experience is an integral part of the graduate program for counselor education students. The APA Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice and the ACPA code of ethics require that students receive regular supervision from site and faculty supervisors during the practicum and internship experiences. However, when student counselors are at distant locations the provision of adequate supervision is a challenge. In such instances student counselors and supervisors attempt to maintain contact through such mediums as the telephone and more recently, e-mail. The purpose of this article is to introduce a new form of distance supervision, cybersupervision. Cybersupervision utilizes Internet videoconferencing to facilitate the counselor supervision process. This article describes the concept of cybersupervision, details technological requirements and discusses advantages and limitations of this form of supervision. (Author)
