The following is a survey of opinions about on-line counseling. The survey is not for the purpose of empirical or quantitative research and only counselors (with or without on-line experience) will receive a request to complete the survey. It is hoped that survey results will provide a snapshot view of counselors' views and experiences of on-line counseling. The results will be incorporated into a book chapter concerning feminism and technology with no reference to names, email addresses, or other identifying information.
