Abstract: Distance and isolation challenges the capacity to provide quality supervision for human service practitioners. This Distance Supervision study demonstrates how a viable, functional contract offers effective supervision within a culturally diverse overseas context. The practitioner receives weekly email supervision once face-to-face contractual agreements are completed. Telephone contact is offered midway and at the end of the study to further provide best practice supervision. The qualitative outcomes through session ratings are compared with a similar study, both of which demonstrate skills development, effective support and greater learning through email supervision. Clients benefit while practitioners flourish through electronics despite distance.
