Telemedicine and telemental health : addressing the barriers to providing psychotherapy through video teleconferencing by David S Baskin( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We live in an age where technological innovation provides new opportunities for increasing the public's access to quality mental health care. Video teleconferencing (VTC) is being used as a reliable and effective means of providing mental health services to people in rural and underserved areas. The current literature and available training protocols for VTC psychotherapy often focus on technical issues rather than clinical considerations. The aim of this qualitative study was to gain a better understanding of the major concerns, limitations, and barriers to the effective treatment of patients with this technology, and to highlight possible solutions to these barriers that may assist providers in clinical decision-making when working with patients through VTC. Participants were eight clinical psychologists, recruited from within the Veterans Health Administration (VA) system, who have worked extensively with VTC as a means of psychotherapy delivery. Grounded theory methodology was used to analyze the data collected in individual semi-structured interviews. Six emergent constructs were identified from the data: I) How clinicians experience VTC, II) What clinicians need in order to start using VTC, III) Establishing a therapeutic alliance through VTC, IV) Considerations for working with different patient populations, V) Adapting interventions to fit the modality, and VI) Preparing for and handling emergencies through VTC. Findings indicate that participants have had a very positive experience with VTC and view this technology as a valuable tool for reaching patients in rural communities. Participants discuss some of the unique advantages of this technology while also noting many barriers and difficulties that must be surmounted if clinicians are to successfully implement treatments through VTC. Results provide preliminary support for the idea that a meaningful and sufficient therapeutic alliance can be attained through this technology and further indicate that appropriate modifications may allow clinicians to successfully treat most clinical populations with most psychotherapeutic interventions. Until best practice guidelines are available, the results of this study may help prepare clinicians for using this technology and assist in clinical decision-making when delivering psychotherapy through VTC
