Event Description

The Foundations in Cybercounselling seminar will provide participants with a solid grounding in the ethics, theory, research and practice of online counselling. Participants will learn about computer and Internet security and other important aspects of the technology.

The variety of online methods will be compared and contrasted with consideration given to ethical and practical issues specific to video counselling. Policies and procedures relevant to the adoption of online counselling will be reviewed.
