Clinical Innovations in Telehealth: Telehealth and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Psychosis (CBTp)

Wednesday, May 20, 2020

The  pandemic has resulted in numerous challenges to providing services to community mental health clients with serious mental illness. As a result, providers have had to quickly pivot the modes of delivering critical services.

The Northwest Mental Health Technology Transfer Center (NW-MHTTC) hosted an hour-long webinar intended to help practitioners consider critical intervention targets and high-yield motivational, cognitive, and behavioral

strategies that are amenable to telephonic encounters, telehealth, or digital accompaniment. The strategies that were selected are appropriate for delivery in any combination of the above-mentioned modalities. Companion clinical tip sheets and self-directed CBT for psychosis learning resources are provided.
