Researching the Cybercounseling Process: A Study of the Client and Counselor Experience.
Lewis, Jacqueline; Coursol, Diane; Wahl, Kay Herting
The literature on cybercounseling is primarily theoretical and contains numerous recommendations for research. This indicates an urgent need for empirical investigations to inform practice and guide policy development in cybercounseling. It has been emphasized that developing guidelines for this treatment modality is an immediate necessity. This document describes a brief counseling interaction that used Internet videoconferencing technology to provide cybercounseling. In this study, cybercounseling refers to counseling over the Internet via videoconferencing. The experience of the counselor and client during the cybercounseling process was analyzed using qualitative methodology. In addition, the chapter describes the skills and competencies used in the practice of cybercounseling. Suggestions to guide practice and implications associated with cybercounseling are discussed.
