Date/Time: November 20, 2014, 1-2:30 p.m. (EST)
Sign up for the webinar at http://continuingeducation.dcri.duke.edu/integrating-technology-dod-efforts-promote-psychological-health
Many behavioral health providers are beginning to incorporate modern technologies into the psychotherapy relationship and process, often at the encouragement of patients who bring apps and downloaded Internet material into clinical settings. This presentation will articulate various opportunities for enhancing the therapeutic impact inherent in several current technologies including web and mobile applications, simulations and distance collaboration technologies and will highlight the necessary steps for moving forward with an integrated model of behavioral health care.
During this webinar participants will learn to:
Understand and articulate reasons why the standard of practice in behavioral health does not currently incorporate the use of modern technologies to include web and mobile applications and distance collaboration technologies
Describe some promising opportunities for improving behavioral health care through the use of these technologies as an adjunct to standard treatment
Outline the steps needed for moving forward with the integration of these technologies into their standard practice
