The purpose of this research study is measure the role of the supervisory alliance as it affects supervisees’ perception of cybersupervision.  

Participants in this research study should be individuals who regularly engage/engaged in cybersupervision as a part of their coursework in a graduate counseling program. Participating in this study involves completing a brief (5 minute) online survey, which asks questions regarding the participant’s perceptions regarding his or her relationship with his or her clinical supervisor in the context of cybersupervision as well as the effectiveness of cybersupervision.


While no direct risks are known to the researcher, it is possible that participants may experience some minor feelings of negativity when reflecting upon some technical aspects of their experiences in cybersupervision.  With that said, benefits are anticipated to far outweigh this potential risk, as this study will provide insight into the current practice of cybersupervision.  The results from the study could contribute to the development of best practices to this area of counselor education
