All Psychotherapy Models for telebehavioral health “fit” well when properly adapted to your chosen technology as long as they don’t require touching the patient. The most important point to recognize when considering psychotherapy models for telebehavioral health is that telehealth is not about the psychotherapy model – it is about increasing access, much like a microphone doesn’t change the message, it just delivers that message to a wider audience. Of course, one has to learn a few strategies for using that microphone. Similarly, with telehealth, practice strategies are based on evidence-based competencies for how to use the technology of your choice. Those core strategies are taught in our web-based training. For example, when thinking about using technology, setting and diagnosis are far more important variables than psychotherapy model. Many professionals haven’t considered how those two variables can be pivotal when working across distance.
