Telepsychiatry with Children and Adolescents in Clinical Practice
Presented by Kathleen Myers, University of Washington
Over the past two decades, telepsychiatry has been gradually incorporated into clinical practice. Then, the COVID-19 pandemic. Psychiatrists were catapulted into the use of telepsychiatry due to “stay-at-home” mandates. Most learned the benefits and downside of telepsychiatry practice through trial and error. Thus, they have a good foundation for further exploration of the integration of telepsychiatry into their practices. This lecture will discuss the optimal practice of telepsychiatry. Information will be presented for both the novice and the pragmatically trained psychiatrist.
Participants will learn of the evidence-base supporting the practice of telepsychiatry with children and adolescents
Participants will learn about the legal and regulatory aspects of telepsychiatry practice pre-pandemic, during pandemic, and with consideration of the potential relaxation of regulations after the pandemic.
Participants will learn about establishing a therapeutic space with youth during telepsychiatry
Participants will join the presenter in discussing the development of an authentic patient-doctor relationship with youth through telepsychiatry
Participants will have the opportunity to discuss clinical interventions appropriate to delivery to youth through telepsychiatry
