Cybercounselling Level 1 is a 12 week online course for experienced practitioners who want to offer professional, ethical text-based online services to their clients. You will learn both asynchronous (e.g., secure email) and synchronous (e.g., chat) approaches. Participants in the course will improve their online skills and professionalism.

The course is highly interactive and personal with a low student to facilitator ratio. Online group and dyadic processes are used so that the entire course is a forum to practise text-based communication skills. Participants from around the world will study and discuss assigned readings, learn about and use secure e-mail technology, practise a diverse range of therapeutic communication skills and tools, engage in role-play, and receive personalized clinical feedback.

The course employs a “practitioner-researcher” model and covers the three areas that are essential to the provision of a professional, ethical, and effective  services:

  • text-based communication skills
  • ethical issues
  • technological knowledge and skills

Assignments are given on a weekly basis. Every Friday evening an electronic lecture will be sent out by the course facilitator. Students review the lecture along with the course website section appropriate to that session and complete the assignments by the following Thursday. With the exception of the week we focus on live text-chat, individuals complete their course work in an asynchronous manner. Because of this, participants can fit the course work into their individual schedules to complete each session’s assignments within specified deadlines.

Participants who have plans to travel while the course is underway will be able to continue their participation, as long as they have Internet access.

Certificates of completion are issued by Worldwide Therapy Online. The workload involves approximately five to seven hours per week. Please carefully consider your ability to schedule these hours into each week.

Full fee is $1287. Discounts available.
