The issues involved in counselling by email and other new technologies.
Therapy is about communication, and there have never been so many ways for us to communicate with each other as there are today. While therapy has traditionally meant working face to face, there are now a growing number of potential clients who wish to use some of the new technologies as a medium for exploring their issues, by emailing, texting, messaging, Skype or something quite different. This, of course, creates challenges for the therapists, who may be less familiar with these things than their clients.
This DVD explores the new technologies and the ways in which they can be used in therapy, It will be of interest to anyone who is considering moving away from solely offering their clients face to face work but feels daunted by the prospect of coming to grips with the implications of doing that.
Produced by Mike Simmons, with Jacqui Atkinson, of the Association for Counsellors and Therapists online.
