With the advent of video phones, netmeeting, and the ability to communicate face-to-face via computer, telehealth will be the next wave in offering psychological services. Most psychogists and most patients already have the access to the equipment necessary to allow for online counseling. What psychologists lack is information on how to apply face-to-face techniques to an online session. This book provides the basics for informing practioners what the pluses and minuses are to treating patients online, how to structure treatment, how to screen and communicate effectively online, how to interpret text without visual cues, and what the legal and ethical issues are to practicing online - particularly aspects of privacy, confidentiality, record-keeping, licensure, and liability. The book also discusses setting up group counseling online and the business aspects of online counseling, including fee collection and third party payment. * A comprehensive manual for the new modality * Written by leading experts in the field * Helps clinicians recognize the potential benefits and risks of the field * Understand important legal and ethical considerations related to online counseling * Gain theoretical and practical knowledge, expand your clinical practice and acquire new skillsReview:
Reviews for the 1st Edition: "Kraus, Zack, and Stricker provide a resource for these changing times in a health field where the demand is great. The technology is here and these editors provide a resource to help practitioners use all the techniques and delivery methods to everyone's advantage. This book is recommended." -E-STREAMS "...it has invaluable information for any mental health professional who deals with online technology to communicate with patients. Overall, this volume is a timely resource for those who are interested in learning how to translate their practice to an online medium... The impressive list of contributors has 22 names of authors with different backgrounds, including internationally recognized specialists... Part 2, Practical Aspects of Online Counseling, is a step-by-step start-up guide. It has a chapter on the technology involved, a separate chapter covering legal and ethical issues, and a chapter on business aspects of online counseling. This is the most practical part of the book and is the place to go for readers who are limited in time and just looking for an "operational manual" to move into online business. Part 3, Clinical Issues in Online Counseling, is an exploration of psychotherapeutic issues involved in treatment without personal contact with a patient. I think this would be of most interest for those who are planning to engage in any sort of counseling online..." -THE AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PSYCHIATRY "...an excellent resource for any mental health professionals who are considering starting an online counseling practice." -Patricia Roles, www.e-mailtherapy.com
