Abstract or Summary
  • Clinical supervision serves a key component in ensuring practitioners' competency and professional identity. This practice also allows more skilled clinicians to serve as gatekeepers to the field, which helps protect clients and the profession. As the use of the Internet increases, many clinical services, including supervision, are more common in this environment. The purpose of this dissertation is to produce two manuscripts, each summarizing a study related to the use of web-based clinical supervision of counselors (i.e., cybersupervision). Using a t test, the first study compared supervisees' perceptions of the effectiveness of supervision when participating in online, full-spectrum, synchronous cybersupervision as compared to engaging in traditional, face-to-face clinical supervision. The results indicated no significant difference in either condition. This suggests that the practice of cybersupervision may be as effective as that of traditional, face-to-face supervision. The second study examined how supervisees experience cybersupervision. The data revealed that supervisees tend to focus most of their energy on establishing an authentic relationship with their clinical supervisors. The quest to attain such authenticity is impacted by an amalgamation of environmental, interpersonal, and intrapsychic factors. Of these, the supervisee's feelings of anxiety and the supervisor's ability to establish rapport were most notable.
