COVID-19 Resources for Psychologists

Technology has become an inherent part of modern psychological treatments. This course provides an overview of the use of digital tools and technology in therapy, including a discussion of the evidence base for integrated (“blended”) face-to face and technology-facilitated therapy, a review of different types of tools available for clinicians, and a discussion of ethical and other concerns about providing and using digital therapies. The course also includes information on the relevance of social media to clinical practice as well as empirically-supported strategies that can help engage clients in the use of digital therapy tools. Clinicians will also learn to identify the best tools to use for their particular clinical need and to introduce strategies for addressing client disengagement or non-adherence. Finally, the course includes discussions of relevant ethical and legal concerns. The aim of this course is to prepare clinicians to successfully integrate digital tools in their own clinical practice and, if desired, to seek additional, more specialized training in the use of digital tools.
