Technology and therapy are changing. Here are some simple steps you can follow to move along with it.
As we transition to more and more of a remote world, we’ve all had to adapt our work and communication styles. As a clinician, preparing for a session you now have to double-check your internet is fully functioning and that your bluetooth earphones are properly connected to your device instead of making sure your client knows where to park or which elevator to take to get to your office. Making sure your tech is running smoothly AND that you don’t miss an important piece of your assessment are vital steps to treating your clients now. Whether you’re a technophobe, a technophile, or anyone in-between these best practices for running a video telehealth session are sure to help.
