The British Journal of Guidance and Counselling has just produced a new symposium looking at online practice in guidance and counselling. I was involved as an editor of the symposium. I think that it makes a really important contribution to thinking about how the internet reshapes practice in the fields of guidance and counselling.
It is well worth spending some time looking at some of these papers.
