Practitioners who use counselling skills in a wide range of contexts: including counselling, education, mental health, social care and careers guidance; and students taking online counselling skills courses
'A very practical text that provides professionals new to this arena with a good introduction to what they can expect to encounter in online work. The book contains numerous thought-provoking examples and exercises for those contemplating work in virtual arenas' - Terry Hanley, Lecturer in Counselling, University of Manchester. 'It's tempting to think that face-to-face experience translates straightforwardly to online work. But it doesn't. Jane Evans shows how many different aspects there are to counselling on-line! My advice would be, don't attempt it until you have worked through this book' - Professor Michael Jacobs, author of "Psychodynamic Counselling in Action". Counsellors and other professionals who provide emotional support and guidance are increasingly working online.The difference between online and face-to-face interaction with clients is vast and practitioners need to equip themselves with specialist knowledge and skills to ensure that they are being effective. "Online Counselling and Guidance Skills" is the first book to deal with the practicalities of this mode of working.It looks at how practitioners need to adapt their basic counselling skills to the online environment and guides them through the process of setting up, defining and maintaining a working relationship with a client within professional, ethical and legal boundaries.Case studies and extracts from online sessions show how the skills are put into practice, while practical exercises and points for further consideration help readers to develop their own knowledge and skills. Until now, books and articles have generally focused on the therapeutic work done by counsellors online. However, this book addresses people who use counselling skills in a wide range of contexts; including counselling, education, mental health, social care and careers guidance.

I bought this book because I was undertaking a course for online counselling, it has become invaluable!
The RED book is a practical 'working book' and underlines the 'how-to' of practice with little snippets and exercises throughout... what I like best are the examples, found throughout the book which give 'real' or simulated 'chat' or emails, and for anyone new to working online this has to be the clincher because this lets you get a feel for what actually happens and how it happens in online counselling, otherwise it's all just academic.
Whatever it is that you need to know about working in online practice is covered, such as online presence, contracting, communication mediums, synchronous and asynchronous sessions, encryption and technological problems, everything you need is covered and is easy to refer to when actually 'doing' the work. For anyone going into private practice this is a must have :D
In a nutshell, I guess what I am saying is that the little RED book is not just academic... its practical, progressive and informative.
