Resources available to module participants

OER (Open Educational Resources)

Open Educational Resources or OERs are freely accessible resources such as textbooks, lecture slides or videos. This benefits teachers and students alike as it means that the resources are accessible anywhere, to anyone, for free. They reside in the public domain or have been released under an open license that permits no-cost access, use, adaptation and redistribution by others with no or limited restrictions (UNESCO, 2019). Take a look at some of these resources below, in relation to Cybertherapy.

Cybertherapy - a modern form of therapy

Online searching for explanations of failures and crises experienced in daily life leads one to websites offering cybertherapy. The therapy is aimed at people who, for different reasons (e.g. lack of time, shyness), do not wish to have a face-to-face session with the psychotherapist. The main goal of the analysis was the problem of providing the aforementioned psychotherapy. By means of PubMed/MEDLINE, Wiley Online Library, Scopus, Web of Science and Google Scholar science databases, we have searched through Polish and abroad references from 2010-2017 for articles discussing the problem of online psychotherapy.
