    • TECHNOLOGY IN THE FIELD OF COUNSELING
      BY: ASHLEY DE LA FUENTE
    • TECHNOLOGY + COUNSELING
      Technology use is expanding through many different workforce fields.
      Counseling is an area where technology is becoming important to connect with clients.
    • ONLINE COMMUNICATION
      Counselors are using web-based communication to connect with their clients through:
      • Email
      • Web-based chat
      • Video conference
    • ONLINE COMMUNICATION CONT’D
      Counselors can communicate internationally with clients who need therapeutic assistance.
      Others reason why counselors use online communication to connect with clients deal with personal issues on behalf of the client.
    • OTHER USES FOR TECHNOLOGY IN COUNSELING
      There are other reason counselors use technology.
      Performing analysis, surveys, and observations can all be done through technology.
      Sabella, 2003 (as cited in Hayden, Poynton, & Sabella, 2008) emphasized that no matter what the situation is, computers are creating ways that can help perform work, communication, and decisions making for counselors
    • DEBATE
      There has been debate regarding technologies use within the field of counseling.
      Since online communication is becoming more useful, people are unsure if this application is superior to face-to-face counseling.
    • DEBATE CONT’D
      However, in the article, “The online and Face-to-Face Counseling Attitude Scales: A Validation Study,” clearly states, “To our knowledge, there seems to be no current systematic line of research that addresses precisely how people perceive online counseling services in comparison with traditional psychological support services” (Beretvas, Rochlen, & Zack, 2001, p.95).
    • CONCLUSION
      It is interesting that technology has the advantage to provide the public with the opportunity to gain therapeutic assistance through the computer.
      Although there is debate on behalf of technology use through web-based communication, it has not been outlawed.
    • CONCLUSION CONT’D
      This type of assistance can benefit both the counselor and the client.
      With counseling being a sensitive field to share private information especially through computers, counselors should take legal precaution before promoted themselves as an online counselor.
