This book considers a range of aspects of online supervision and is suitable for therapists who already offer this means of delivering supervision as well as those who may be curious about it. As online therapy becomes more mainstream, the importance of using a means of supervision which parallels this is increasingly being recognised by practitioners and the professional bodies. To date, very little has been written about this newly developing way of working.

Online Supervision covers a wide range of issues, from the practical aspects of how it happens, through research, legal and ethical issues to specific therapeutic settings and issues. Existing models of supervision are considered in the context of the online setting and some new models which have been developed for specifically for supervising online are explored. All chapters are authored by experienced online therapists and supervisors, who bring their considerable knowledge from their practice to illuminate this growing area of the profession.

While the book aims to develop the practice of online supervision, it is recognised that there are circumstances which mean that some practitioners may choose to engage in online supervision of their face-to-face work. This is recognised and so guidelines for offering and engaging in online supervision are discussed. Many practitioners begin to offer online supervision without specialised training and the final chapter centres on a discussion about the value and necessity of undertaking preparation for working in a new medium. Above all, the work aims to be readable and accessible to both experienced practitioners and newcomers to this field.
