Better Help Kritik – Get your answer

When I was first approached…Better Help Kritik…. to potentially collaborate with them on a youtube series one of the things that was really essential to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I discussed what what topics I chose to present and likewise you know my own views when when essential or appropriate to share them and I was approved that by a they generally said you know we trust you as a scientific expert and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and speak about what you know and among the things that I actually wanted to address is the fact that I’m not simply here to say that online treatment is the answer for everything you know I believe it can be extremely handy for many individuals I have actually seen it myself working with individuals from a few months up to over a year and I seen how having the ability to message and also have video sessions with someone is really a it

practically enhances the the healing experience in a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see people face-to-face and I thoroughly enjoy that and there are people that I see there that I would not think about seeing online either they wouldn’t be appropriate we wouldn’t be able to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it simply wouldn’t feel comfortable and and that’s okay those 2 things can both hold true and I think one of the important things that I want to begin to have people think of exists’s a location for both online and offline therapy it is really a matter of you know choosing what’s right for you but likewise what’s most appropriate for you with the help of a professional when I discuss specific therapy styles or methods 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 people have is that online therapy is attempting to change offline counseling and I can inform you 100% that that’s not real I have actually had lots of conversations with the creator of where he has actually mentioned that his audience isn’t to take on traditional practices or put psychologists or licensed experts out of business his objective is to provide mental health access to individuals who aren’t going to come into the treatment workplace and I 100% support that mission and I think it is necessary and we have a problem with gain access to

to psychological healthcare in this nation and is one solution as our other online companies I was pointing out previously that there are things that I personally think that online treatment is better suited for or offline therapy is better for and I’ve really I’ve really discussed this in other settings since it is something I feel pretty passionate about and I need to state that my opinion has actually been favored by companies like in regards to ideally how they how they work with the people that provide for care so I just wanted to invest a couple of minutes talking about my own is my own individual opinion about the things that are most appropriate for offline versus online treatment so in my view I see online treatment as a terrific location for people who are fighting with challenging life shifts for scenarios where they’re experiencing more tension than regular for circumstances where you know they have an extremely precise problem with stress and anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is extremely structured can can benefit them and that treatment since it’s not as interpersonal as others is perfect for online counseling due to the fact that it includes a great deal of homework it involves worksheets it includes learning specific abilities and methods so mild milder conditions like mild stress and anxiety mild depression adjustment disorders even PTSD as long as like the person has gotten care initially in other places these are all things that can be addressed through online counseling you understand think about someone who has a agoraphobia and possibly they reach out to a therapist from their house since they can’t leave their home and simply simply to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where people are really horrified of being caught and trapped in a place where they might have a panic attack and so essentially they begin to limit their activities and limit their activities till a number of them can’t leave their house without truly feeling considerable distress so if somebody like that is at home and they can reach out through their computer system and link to a therapist that’s an excellent primary step is that going to treat them never due to the fact that agoraphobia to be successfully dealt with requirements that person to be able to go outdoors and to resume regular activities and sometimes that involves a therapist going to their home to help them with that process clearly online counselors are going to be able to do that but could they be the bridge that got that person who hesitates to leave their house from that preliminary helpful method to therapy where they can really have a better life 100% and this is what the space 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 plainly interact that anything that I show you is going to be completely from where I stand as a professional psychologist and more importantly what I believe is as simply a human being on this earth attempting to do the best that I can therefore I I will not tell you that something is appropriate that I don’t think is appropriate I won’t show you that online therapy is the cure-all for whatever due to the fact that I don’t think that therefore you can constantly expect to hear my sincere opinion on what I believe from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you discovered this video handy and fascinating if you did please like it below and do not hesitate to register for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing more and more videos on a variety of different psychological health topics and please connect if there’s something particular you would like us to address or cover in an approaching video
