Cybersupervision: Further Examination of Synchronous and Asynchronous Modalities in Counseling Practicum Supervision
Chapman, Russell A.; Baker, Stanley B.; Nassar-McMillan, Sylvia C.; Gerler, Edwin R.
Counselor Education and Supervision, v50 n5 p298-313 Sep 2011
The authors used an intensive single-subject quantitative design to examine cybersupervision of counseling practicum students in a university setting. Five female supervisees volunteered to receive their required weekly supervision online during a 14-week, semester-long counseling practicum. Following a face-to-face orientation meeting, all remaining interactions among the supervisees and with the supervisor occurred electronically. Data were collected about the utility of the synchronous and asynchronous modalities, changes in supervisee competence and confidence during the practicum, and supervisee attitudes about the cybersupervision approach. The findings offered evidence that the web-based modality could be used in similar settings.
