DCoE Webinar – Clinical Use of Mobile Apps in Behavioral Health Treatment

Description:

Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE) presents:  

Clinical Use of Mobile Apps in Behavioral Health Treatment

Date: Nov. 15

Time: 3-4:30pm

With new technological developments occurring every day, health care providers are in a unique position to interact with patients using different modalities (e.g., mobile phones, websites, tablets). For example, behavioral health clinicians may use mobile apps to reinforce skills learned during the therapeutic process.

The National Center for Telehealth and Technology (T2) leads the Defense Department’s efforts to advance the use of technology for the prevention, assessment and treatment of a broad range of health conditions for service members, veterans and their families.

Using the latest technology, T2:

Creates virtual reality mental health applications
Oversees suicide surveillance/automation programs across the Defense Department
Facilitates telehealth and Web-based care for psychological health/traumatic brain injury (TBI) (video teleconferencing, afterdeployment.org, interactive media)
Develops mobile applications to support 24/7 access to behavioral health tools and critical support systems

The goal of this webinar is to inform individuals about T2’s technological resources for use in psychological health and TBI care with a special emphasis on mobile apps that may be used to supplement psychological health treatment. Specifically, this webinar will:

Discuss the PE Coach, a mobile application designed to support the tasks associated with prolonged exposure treatment for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This mobile application helps users to self-monitor behavior and provides education about PTSD as well as resources for coping with PTSD.
Discuss the T2 Mood Tracker, a mobile application that helps users to self-monitor, track and reference their emotional experience over a period of days, weeks and months using a visual analogue rating scale.

Julie Kinn, Ph.D., Deputy Director, Mobile Health Program, National Center for Telehealth and Technology

Greg Reger, Ph.D, Licensed Clinical Psychologist, National Center for Telehealth and Technology
