Readiness of Peer Counsellors to Provide Video-based and Text-based Online Counselling
Peer counsellors have an important role in the prevention and treatment of mental health problems. Following the rapid development of technology, counselling conducted by peer counsellors can be carried out through online counselling with video and text based. The study aimed to determine the readiness of peer counsellors in conducting online counselling through video and text media. There were 11 participants who were given intensive training on the basics of counselling and roleplay in counselling with video and text. Pretest and posttest were conducted to determine the readiness in conducting online counselling. The results of data analysis by t-test showed that the training provided significant changes in the readiness of peer counsellors in conducting counselling with video-based (Sig = 0.01 < 0.05), while the training provided did not provide significant changes in the readiness of peer counsellors in conducting online counselling text-based (Sig = 0.095 > 0.05). This shows that the training can influence the readiness of peer counsellors in conducting counselling via video. On the other hand, the training did not influence the readiness of peer counsellors in conducting counselling text-based. Further research can be conducted on effective training to improve the readiness of peer counsellors in conducting counselling text-based.
