Technology and Accessibility in Clinical Supervision: Challenges and Solutions
Technology to assist in clinical supervision or training (TAST) broadens accessibility and promotes inclusivity in both in-person and online supervision delivery. This chapter describes accessibility issues in TAST and technology-assisted distance supervision (TADS) in five areas which includes access issues for persons with disabilities, the human factor in supervision, geography and distance, technology and skills, and digital agility and decision making. In addition, affordability, attitudinal issues, availability, and inclusivity are cross-cutting factors in the five areas. With the rapid advances in technology use in higher education and counseling, the use of TADS will continue to broaden accessibility, especially for trainees and supervisors with disabilities. The expanding use of TAST in counseling reflects the importance of the seamless integration of technology into the supervision process for all counselors and the ability to develop effective working alliances online between supervisors and supervisees.
