Better Help Family Therapy – Get your answer

When I was first approached…Better Help Family Therapy…. to perhaps team up with them on a youtube series one of the things that was truly crucial to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I spoke about what what subjects I selected to present and also you understand my own views when when needed or appropriate to share them and I was granted that by a they basically stated you know we trust you as a clinical professional and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and discuss what you understand and one of the important things that I really wanted to address is the truth that I’m not simply here to say that online treatment is the answer for whatever you understand I think it can be incredibly valuable for many people I’ve seen it myself dealing with individuals from a few months approximately over a year and I seen how being able to message and also have video sessions with somebody is truly a it

practically improves the the healing experience in a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see individuals face-to-face and I thoroughly delight in that and there are people that I see there that I would not consider seeing online either they would not be appropriate we would not have the ability to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it just would not feel comfy and which’s fine those 2 things can both be true and I believe among the things that I wish to begin to have people think of is there’s a place for both offline and online therapy it is actually a matter of you know choosing what’s right for you but likewise what’s most suitable for you with the help of an expert when I talk about particular therapy designs or techniques as being appropriate for you what I mean by that is that it would be the very best approach for

the particular problem that you’re handling and I think that one of the issues that a lot of people have is that online therapy is attempting to replace offline counseling and I can tell you 100% that that’s not real I’ve had many discussions with the founder of where he has mentioned that his audience isn’t to take on physical practices or put psychologists or licensed specialists out of business his mission is to supply psychological health access to individuals who aren’t going to come into the treatment workplace and I 100% assistance that mission and I think it’s important and we have an issue with access

to psychological health care in this country and is one solution as our other online business I was pointing out previously that there are things that I personally believe that online therapy is better suited for or offline therapy is better suited for and I’ve actually I’ve in fact discussed this in other settings since it is something I feel pretty enthusiastic about and I need to say that my opinion has actually been popular by business like in terms of ideally how they how they deal with individuals that present for care so I just wanted to spend a couple of minutes talking about my own is my own personal opinion about the important things that are most appropriate for online versus offline treatment so in my view I see online treatment as a terrific location for individuals who are battling with difficult life shifts for scenarios where they’re experiencing more tension than normal for circumstances where you understand they have an extremely precise concern with stress and anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavior modification which is really structured can can benefit them and that therapy since it’s not as interpersonal as others is ideal for online counseling due to the fact that it involves a great deal of research it involves worksheets it includes learning specific skills and techniques so mild milder conditions like moderate anxiety mild depression modification disorders even PTSD as long as like the person has received care at first somewhere else these are all things that can be attended to through online therapy you understand consider someone who has a agoraphobia and maybe they connect to a counselor from their home because they can’t leave their home and simply just to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where people are really frightened of being caught and caught in a location where they may have an anxiety attack and so basically they start to limit their activities and restrict their activities till much of them can’t leave their house without really feeling considerable distress so if somebody like that is at home and they can connect through their computer system and link to a counselor that’s an excellent initial step is that going to cure them never because agoraphobia to be effectively dealt with requirements that person to be able to go outside and to resume normal activities and often that includes a therapist going to their home to help them with that procedure clearly online therapists are going to have the ability to do that but might they be the bridge that got that person who hesitates to leave their house from that initial helpful approach to counseling where they can actually have a better life 100% and this is what the space that intends to fill with their services my indicate this to this particular video and bringing these

things up is that I I wish to clearly communicate that anything that I share with you is going to be totally from where I stand as a professional psychologist and more significantly what I believe is as simply a human being on this earth trying to do the very best that I can and so I I will not tell you that something is appropriate that I do not believe is appropriate I won’t show you that online therapy is the cure-all for whatever since I don’t believe that and so you can constantly anticipate to hear my truthful opinion on what I believe from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you discovered this video intriguing and valuable if you did please like it below and do not hesitate to subscribe to our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing increasingly more videos on a variety of different mental health subjects and please reach out if there’s something specific you would like us to address or cover in an upcoming video
