Dee Wagner, BC-DMT, LPC, primary creator and instructor of our Digital Dance online course presents a small portion of the webinar material at the Expressive Arts Summit in NYC. Her workshop opens discussion about how to use technology to embody, rather than allowing it to unconsciously disembody.

Online dating can be turbulent times, but if one is intentional it can be a great opportunity for growth and healing.  Dee Wagner, BC-DMT, LPC has written articles and a workbook that guides online daters through the process of building awareness, processing their emotions, and growing in their interpersonal relationships. 

Two highly experienced clinicians share how they expanded their psychotherapy services by including online counseling.  They share some great advice to those also wanting provide this option to their current and prospective clients.

 

 

 

When great clinicians have great information to share they want to share it LOUD, and help as many people as they can.  With the internet, we can easily share our helpful and powerful information to anyone who needs it.  Due to only being able to practice healthcare within the state’s in which a clinician is licensed, some may be tempted to label their services as psychoeducation rather than psychotherapy.  Most clinicians may not even be trying to “get away” with practicing across state lines (interstate counseling) without being licensed in all states, but truly be wanting to solely provide psychoeducation.

The results are coming in from the Georgia Telemental Health Rule.  Should other states follow suit?

Georgia requires that Social Workers, Marriage and Family Therapists, and Licensed Professional Counselors, who provide telemental health services, attend at least a 6 hour CE training on telemental health counseling.  Clinical supervisors are required to take an additional 3 CE hour course on how to supervise telemental health counseling.

Great insights on telephonic case management from a true expert.

Many of my alumni have questions on setting up their home office.  I love my home office.  I often take short breaks to spend time with my wife and youngest child, who is not yet in school.  I also love checking in with my older children when they get home from school.  To help you get started I will share with you how I have set up my home office.

  • VA + TeleHealth = BIG NEWS

    One Million Telehealth Visits in 2018!  The VA continues to expand its utilization of telehealth.  2018’s numbers are 19% higher than last years.

    This number is bound to greatly increase.  The new Authority of Health Care Providers to Practice Telehealth rule, published in the Federal Register on October 2nd, 2017, allows for the VA to provide telehealth services directly to veterans’ homes across the country.  In addition, the VA launched its new mobile VA Video Connect application, making video sessions easier for veterans. I suspect these recent developments have only begun to show a footprint. Only 105,300 of the million + video visits were conducted using the new mobile application.

  • Digital Therapeutics

     Head with electricity

    I have briefly addressed the topic of Digital Therapeutics in a previous blog entry that focused on ADHD and Esteem Therapeutics.
    New to this term? "Digital Therapeutics" is an emerging form of technology in healthcare that combines software programs, devices, and various interventions to generate an umbrella of caregiving that covers all the parties involved in treatment. Technological aspects are used in conjunction with other forms of "traditional" treatment such as therapy or medication. Patients and caregivers collaborate and are kept in sync with updated information that is readily available to all in order to optimize patient outcomes.
    Digital therapeutics addresses a wide range of conditions and provides a myriad of high-quality options for personalized patient care. Digital therapeutics forms an independent category of a broader healthcare program and is distinct from diagnostic and telehealth products. Implementing a program will involve a network of therapy options in which each component of care reinforces and supports the other.

    In Opinion 19-02, the Office of Inspector General declares its support o allowing drug manufacturers to temporary loan smartphones to low-income patients who are prescribed antipsychotic digital medications. A sensor is embedded in the medication, and once taken, transmits a signal to a patch worn by the patient. The patch records ingestion of medication, rest and activity levels, and uploads the data to a smartphone app via Bluetooth. The patient has the ability to add more detailed information (moods, sleep quality) to the app, and then the app syncs with secure, cloud-based data banks.
