Associate Director for Training at Palo Alto University Center for m2Health, California, and Chief Clinical Officer at Elos Health.


Technology plays an essential role in modern life, and its many advantages can support and expand existing mental health programs. However, clinicians do not always have the knowledge and skills to add digital tools to the services they offer. This workshop will present a framework for integrating digital tools into clinical practice. Attendees will learn and practice skills to include the following components in their work:

  • digital tools for self-monitoring;
  • online programs and mobile applications;
  • teletherapy to provide remote treatment, training, and supervision;
  • handling of email and text messages from clients;
  • and assessment of the client’s use of social media and other digital platforms.

Strategies to determine when technology could benefit clients, and how to curate the most suitable digital tools will be reviewed. Relevant clinical and ethical considerations regarding privacy, safety, and billing in digitally-enhanced mental health services will also be discussed.

Watch for additional information and registration coming soon!

Learning Objectives
At the end of this presentation, participants at the workshop will be able to:

1.  Describe the categories of digital services that are applicable for different clinical purposes.

2.  Prepare to incorporate technology in their clinical practice using telepsychology, online programs, smartphone applications and more.

3.  Assess the prominent legal, ethical and practical considerations for using technology in clinical practice.
