BEHAVIORAL HEALTH / FEATURE
SESSION 3
The warm touch of tech
There are many benefits to taking behavioral health care virtual.
Here are just a few.
THE EXPERTS
Moderator: Michael Sorter, M.D., Director, Division of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, Cincinnati Children's Hospital
Alecia Corbett, M.S.W., LCSW, Child & Family Therapist, School-Based Mental Health, Children's Wisconsin
David Brent, M.D., Academic Chief, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, UPMC Western Psychiatric Hospital
Rameshwari Tumuluru, M.D., Medical Director, Child and Adolescent Outpatient Programs, UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh
IMPROVE THE ZOOM
Virtual therapy rooms
Alecia Corbett: " My virtual therapy room looks
similar to how my office would look. There's a chair,
books and games. We can use these things like we
were sitting in front of each other. It gives us better
engagement and interaction, the ability to teach
what our patients and families need to learn and
give the patient a choice. For example, at the end of a
session, a patient may say, 'I want to play Uno.' Before,
we couldn't do that-but now there are websites, and
you can share your screen or share links to play. "
Privacy concerns? Don't worry. Game-sharing sites
let you create a room and share a link directly, so
there will be no strangers in the room with you.
SAFETY FIRST
Safety planning app
for suicide prevention
David Brent: " The first step (in using the app) is
teaching kids about the emotional thermometer
and how to use it to rate their level of distress...then
going over reasons for living. They can populate the
app if they are in a lot of distress-then they can
access coping strategies and a list of folks they can
reach out to with their numbers programmed in. "
" We ask the parent whether they can
think of anything that might get in the
way of using this app to make sure they
have input and buy-in. "
-DAVID BRENT
VIRTUAL VISITS
A new window into
the patient home
Rameshwari Tumuluru: " We're now seeing what's
going on with families in their homes, which you
never experienced before because patients were
only talking about
it. For me,
it increased my
empathy for the patients I was treating ... it also gave
me opportunities to intervene in real time, because I
could see them in real time and pull them in. "
