Essential approaches to clinical practice for today’s out-of-office world.
Psychotherapy is not confined to the office: it can be online, virtual, wellness-oriented, flexible, and in service of public wellness. COVID-19 has forever changed the landscape of psychotherapy in these ways, and in ways we have yet to discover.
Practicing psychologist Chanté D. DeLoach invites readers to reflect on the state of psychotherapy and emerging potentialities forged through crisis. She presents key concepts of telemental health, concierge therapy, and other out-of-office approaches to psychological well-being.
DeLoach provides step-by-step guidance on getting started in telemental health, and points to clinical, ethical, and legal considerations for clinicians working in a digital space and other nontraditional formations. Through interwoven examples and reflective exercises, Dr. DeLoach provides tools to support practitioners as they reimagine their clinical identities to meet the needs of today’s clients. This book offers keen insights and learning for all clinicians, from trainees to seasoned practitioners, who are embarking on this new terrain.
