Better Vs Improve – Get your answer

When I was first approached…Better Vs Improve…. to potentially team up with them on a youtube series one of the important things that was actually important to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I spoke about what what topics I picked 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 generally said you know we trust you as a clinical professional and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and discuss what you understand and among the important things that I actually wished to address is the truth that I’m not simply here to state that online treatment is the answer for everything you know I think it can be incredibly helpful for many people I’ve seen it myself dealing with people from a few months as much as over a year and I seen how having the ability to message and also have video sessions with someone is truly a it

almost enhances the the therapeutic experience in such a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see individuals face-to-face and I completely take pleasure in that and there are people that I see there that I wouldn’t consider seeing online either they would not be appropriate we wouldn’t be able to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it just wouldn’t feel comfortable and which’s all right those 2 things can both hold true and I believe one of the things that I wish to start to have people think about exists’s a location for both online and offline therapy it is actually a matter of you understand deciding what’s right for you but likewise what’s most suitable for you with the help of an expert when I discuss specific counseling styles or methods as being appropriate for you what I indicate by that is that it would be the very best technique for

the particular problem 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 trying to change offline therapy and I can tell you 100% that that’s not real I’ve had numerous conversations with the founder of where he has pointed out that his audience isn’t to take on physical practices or put psychologists or certified experts out of business his mission is to provide mental health access to individuals who aren’t going to come into the treatment office and I 100% assistance that mission and I think it is essential and we have an issue with gain access to

to psychological healthcare in this nation and is one option as our other online companies I was pointing out earlier that there are things that I personally believe that online treatment is better suited for or offline therapy is better suited for and I’ve in fact I’ve actually spoken about this in other settings because it is something I feel quite passionate about and I need to state that my opinion has been well-received by business like in regards to ideally how they how they deal with individuals that provide for care so I simply wanted to spend a number of minutes speaking about my own is my own personal opinion about the important things that are most suitable for offline versus online therapy so in my view I see online treatment as a wonderful location for people who are fighting with challenging life shifts for situations where they’re experiencing more stress than regular for scenarios where you know they have an extremely precise concern with anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is extremely structured can can benefit them which treatment since it’s not as interpersonal as others is ideal for online counseling because it includes a great deal of homework it includes worksheets it involves learning specific abilities and methods so mild milder conditions like moderate stress and anxiety mild depression modification conditions even PTSD as long as like the individual has received care initially somewhere else these are all things that can be resolved through online counseling you know consider someone who has a agoraphobia and possibly they reach out to a counselor from their home since they can’t leave their home and just just to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where individuals are actually terrified of being caught and caught in a place where they may have a panic attack therefore basically they begin to restrict their activities and restrict their activities until many of them can’t leave their home without truly feeling substantial distress so if someone like that is at home and they can reach out through their computer and connect to a therapist that’s a great initial step is that going to treat them never because agoraphobia to be effectively dealt with needs that person to be able to go outdoors and to resume regular activities and often that includes a therapist going to their home to help them with that process clearly online counselors are going to be able to do that however might they be the bridge that got that individual who’s afraid to leave their home from that preliminary supportive technique to therapy where they can actually have a much better life 100% and this is what the space that intends to fill with their services my indicate this to this specific video and bringing these

things up is that I I wish to clearly interact that anything that I share with you is going to be completely from where I stand as an expert psychologist and more significantly what I think is as simply a human being on this earth attempting to do the best that I can therefore I I won’t tell you that something is appropriate that I do not believe is appropriate I will not share with you that online counseling is the cure-all for whatever because I do not think that therefore you can always anticipate to hear my sincere viewpoint on what I believe from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you discovered this video fascinating and valuable if you did please like it below and feel free to register for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing a growing number of videos on a variety of different mental health topics and please connect if there’s something specific you would like us to cover or address in an approaching video
