Apps for Therapy, Therapists, and Self-Help: A Refresher
Featuring: Simon Rego, PsyD, ABPP, ACT
The aim of this webinar is to provide a refresher on the use of apps in clinical practice, first by giving an update on the adoption and use of apps, then by reviewing the risks and benefits associated with using apps in clinical practice, and finally, by highlighting some of the most popular mental health apps. Despite the numerous advances that have been made in the field, many experts (e.g., Kazdin & Blase, 2011) believe that mental health professionals are not likely to reduce the prevalence, incidence and burden of mental illness without a major shift in intervention research and clinical practice.
