Better Help Internships – Get your answer

When I was first approached…Better Help Internships…. to possibly 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 picked to provide and likewise you know my own views when when essential or appropriate to share them and I was approved that by a they basically stated you know we trust you as a clinical expert and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and talk about what you know and one of the things that I truly wished to address is the truth that I’m not simply here to say that online treatment is the answer for everything you know I think it can be incredibly helpful for many individuals I’ve seen it myself dealing with people from a few months up to over a year and I seen how having the ability to message and likewise have video sessions with somebody is truly a it

almost enhances the the restorative experience in such a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see people in person and I thoroughly enjoy that and there are individuals that I see there that I wouldn’t 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 simply wouldn’t feel comfy and and that’s alright those 2 things can both hold true and I think one of the things that I wish to start to have individuals think of exists’s a place for both offline and online therapy it is actually a matter of you know choosing what’s right for you but also what’s most appropriate for you with the help of a professional when I talk about specific therapy designs or techniques as being appropriate for you what I imply by that is that it would be the best method for

the particular issue that you’re dealing with and I believe that a person of the concerns that a lot of individuals have is that online therapy is trying to replace offline therapy and I can tell you 100% that that’s not true I have actually had many conversations with the creator of where he has actually discussed that his audience isn’t to compete with traditional practices or put psychologists or certified specialists out of business his objective is to supply psychological health access to individuals who aren’t going to enter the therapy office and I 100% assistance that mission and I believe it is essential and we have an issue with gain access to

to mental health care in this nation and is one service as our other online companies I was discussing earlier that there are things that I personally think that online therapy is more appropriate for or offline treatment is better suited for and I’ve actually I’ve actually discussed this in other settings since it is something I feel quite enthusiastic about and I have to say that my opinion has actually been popular by companies like in regards to ideally how they how they work with the people that provide for care so I just wished to invest a number of minutes talking about my own is my own individual opinion about the things that are most appropriate for offline versus online therapy so in my view I see online treatment as a fantastic place for people who are fighting with hard life shifts for scenarios where they’re experiencing more tension than typical for scenarios where you understand they have an extremely well-defined concern with anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavior modification which is very structured can can benefit them and that therapy since it’s not as interpersonal as others is perfect for online therapy because it includes a lot of research it involves worksheets it involves finding out particular skills and strategies so moderate milder disorders like moderate anxiety mild depression change disorders even PTSD as long as like the individual has actually gotten care initially elsewhere these are all things that can be attended to through online counseling you understand think of someone who has a agoraphobia and perhaps they connect to a therapist from their house since they can’t leave their house and just just to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where people are really frightened of being caught and trapped in a location where they may have a panic attack and so essentially they begin to limit their activities and limit their activities up until many of them can’t leave their home without truly feeling considerable distress so if someone like that is at house and they can connect through their computer system and connect to a counselor that’s an excellent primary step is that going to cure them never due to the fact that agoraphobia to be successfully treated needs that individual to be able to go outdoors and to resume regular activities and sometimes that includes a therapist going to their home to help them with that process undoubtedly online therapists are going to be able to do that but could they be the bridge that got that individual who’s afraid to leave their home from that preliminary supportive method to therapy where they can in fact have a better life 100% and this is what the gap that aims to fill with their services my point to this to this particular video and bringing these

things up is that I I wish to clearly interact that anything that I show you is going to be totally from where I stand as a professional psychologist and more significantly what I think is as simply a human being on this earth trying to do the very best that I can and so I I will not inform you that something is appropriate that I don’t believe is appropriate I will not share with you that online therapy is the cure-all for whatever because I don’t think that and so you can constantly expect to hear my truthful opinion on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you found this video interesting and useful if you did please like it listed below and feel free to sign up for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing more and more videos on a variety of various psychological health subjects and please connect if there’s something specific you would like us to cover or attend to in an upcoming video
