Better Better Best – Try Now

When I was first approached…Better Better Best…. to perhaps work together with them on a youtube series among the important things that was really important to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I spoke about what what topics I chose to provide and likewise you know my own views when when necessary or appropriate to share them and I was given that by a they generally stated you know we trust you as a medical expert and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and speak about what you know and one of the things that I actually wanted to address is the fact that I’m not simply here to say that online treatment is the answer for whatever you know I believe it can be exceptionally practical for lots of people I have actually seen it myself working with people from a few months up to over a year and I seen how being able to message and also have video sessions with somebody is really a it

practically enriches the the restorative experience in a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see individuals in person and I completely enjoy that and there are individuals that I see there that I would not consider seeing online either they would not be appropriate we wouldn’t have the ability to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it just wouldn’t feel comfy and which’s okay those two things can both hold true and I believe one of the things that I want to begin to have people think of exists’s a place for both offline and online treatment it is actually a matter of you know deciding what’s right for you however likewise what’s most suitable for you with the help of an expert when I speak about certain therapy designs or techniques as being appropriate for you what I mean by that is that it would be the very best approach for

the particular problem that you’re handling and I think that one of the issues that a great deal of people have is that online therapy is trying to replace offline counseling and I can tell you 100% that that’s not true I have actually had numerous conversations with the creator of where he has mentioned that his audience isn’t to take on traditional practices or put psychologists or certified professionals out of business his objective is to offer mental health access to the people who aren’t going to enter the treatment office and I 100% assistance that mission and I believe it is essential and we have an issue with access

to mental health care in this country and is one option as our other online business I was pointing out earlier that there are things that I personally believe that online treatment is better for or offline treatment is more appropriate for and I’ve really I’ve in fact spoken about this in other settings due to the fact that it is something I feel pretty passionate about and I have to state that my opinion has actually been popular by companies like in regards to hopefully how they how they deal with individuals that provide for care so I simply wished to spend a couple of minutes talking about my own is my own individual viewpoint about the things that are most proper for offline versus online therapy so in my view I see online treatment as a terrific place for people who are fighting with tough life transitions for circumstances where they’re experiencing more stress than normal for circumstances where you understand they have a really well-defined concern with stress and anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is very structured can can benefit them and that therapy because it’s not as interpersonal as others is best for online therapy since it involves a great deal of homework it involves worksheets it includes learning particular skills and techniques so mild milder disorders like moderate anxiety mild depression modification conditions even PTSD as long as like the individual has received care at first elsewhere these are all things that can be dealt with through online therapy you know think about somebody who has a agoraphobia and maybe they connect to a therapist from their house due to the fact that they can’t leave their home and simply just to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where individuals are really terrified of being caught and trapped in a location where they may have an anxiety attack therefore basically they begin to limit their activities and restrict their activities until many of them can’t leave their house without really feeling substantial distress so if somebody like that is at home and they can reach out through their computer system and link to a counselor that’s a great first step is that going to treat them never because agoraphobia to be effectively dealt with needs that person to be able to go outside and to resume normal activities and in some cases that involves a therapist going to their house to help them with that procedure undoubtedly online counselors are going to be able to do that however could they be the bridge that got that individual who hesitates to leave their house from that initial encouraging technique to counseling where they can in fact have a better life 100% and this is what the space that intends to fill with their services my point to this to this particular video and bringing these

things up is that I I wish to clearly communicate that anything that I share with you is going to be fully from where I stand as an expert psychologist and more notably what I believe is as simply a human being on this earth attempting to do the best that I can and so I I will not tell you that something is appropriate that I do not believe is appropriate I won’t show you that online counseling is the cure-all for whatever because I don’t think that therefore you can constantly anticipate to hear my truthful opinion on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a licensed psychologist I hope you found this video interesting and practical if you did please like it listed 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 various mental health subjects and please connect if there’s something specific you would like us to deal with or cover in an upcoming video
