Many therapists find the idea of online therapy, aka telemental health, off-putting, but knowing the ins and outs of working with clients remotely, such as through video, will soon be a necessity for most of us. Did you know that a large factor affecting clinical outcomes for telemental health work is the therapist’s comfort and familiarity with both the technology and the procedures/protocols being used? In other words, training and deliberate practice have a very big impact on outcomes.
