In the modern age, where everything is being done via the web, psychologists are now offering individual therapy sessions via the web/phone.
What does this mean for our patients and the average consumer???
Studies as far back as 10 years ago have demonstrated CBT delivered via web/phone as equally effective as face-to-face treatment. Treating clinicians and patients were also measured on the quality of their relationship, which statistically did not differ from face-to-face sessions.
It is important to note that these studies focused on the delivery of CBT (evidence-based treatment that focuses on independent skill development) via the web/phone.
We receive calls from across the country, especially in parts of Maryland and Virginia (DC is relatively small) that cannot get access to services. Please be informed of what is available to you and how to reach out to get the most evidence-based treatment for your anxiety and/or depression.
Have a wonderful Halloween and a good time facing your fears!
