As technological advances increasingly affect counselor training and supervision, counselors have grappled with how to best make technology work to expand the scope, effectiveness, and quality of supervision. This book is the first comprehensive research and practice-based guide for understanding and assessing supervision technology and for using it to improve the breadth and depth of services offered to supervisees and clients.
Written by supervisors, for supervisors, it examines the technology that is currently available and how and when to use it.
Part I provides a thorough review of the technological, legal, ethical, cultural, accessibility, and security competencies that are the foundation for effectively integrating technology into clinical supervision. Part II presents
applications of the most prominent and innovative uses of technology across the major domains in counseling, along with best practices for delivery.
"This excellent team of content experts address not only a range of technologies and their uses, but also the legal and ethical considerations to which supervisors should attend. It is essential that supervisors be technologically competent, and this volume will be invaluable in helping to ensure that competence."

"The editors and expert contributors show us the tremendous value of integrating technology into clinical supervision, and of closely attending to the nuances and opportunities involved with preparing and supervising counselors in an ever-changing landscape. This is a must-have resource for the delivery of clinical supervision today."

"Rousmaniere and Renfro-Michel offer a compelling and comprehensive understanding of how supervisors and supervisees can benefit from integrating technology into the supervisory process. There is a technology wave approaching, and these authors provide the tools needed to successfully ride the wave rather than crash into it."
