Supervisors around the world are quickly discovering that technology can dramatically improve the breadth and depth of services offered to supervisees and clients. This introductory chapter provides an overview of key concepts discussed in the book. The book provide supervisors with an informed, accessible, and usable assessment of technologies that are currently available, including how to use them, when to use them, and when not to use them and to provide guidance on best practices in using technology in clinical supervision. Clinical supervision is first and foremost based on the working relationship between the supervisor and supervisee, and questions have been raised about how technology may affect the supervisory relationship. Videoconference promises to greatly expand the reach of advanced, postgraduate supervision. Online supervision may be utilized when meeting for supervision in person would be difficult or impossible, often because of the distance between the supervisor and supervisee.
