Abstract

This research addresses how technology is transforming the world; specifically, how we live, communicate and interact. Two questions posed for counselors: first, should counselors avoid, minimize, maximize or embrace the online environment; and second, how does on-line counseling fit within the profession. In addition, reviewed are professional standards, certifications and in-practice issues. Findings suggest that counselors should embrace new technologies and assess best-practice protocols.
