The proliferation of computer-mediated communication has led to the experimentation with these tools in psychotherapy. This article examines the possible integration between traditional and new tools in psychotherapy, showing pros and cons of the use of technology. In particular, the article focuses on the concept of e-therapy and the technology it requires. An analysis of the most functional tools and software now available is also presented, with a particular focus on shared hypermedia, new Internet tools in which different users who are simultaneously browsing the Web can communicate and surf together.
