This free webinar will provide practical considerations for using phone apps. Our moderator will introduce a competency-based framework for including phone apps in clinical practice to set the stage for the guest presenters to provide specific and practical ways in which phone apps can be used in practice.
A single topic area will be highlighted to illustrate how phone apps can be used in working with a particular population. For purposes of this demonstration, that focus will be the inclusion of apps in the treatment of individuals across the spectrum of emotional distress, from stress reduction and relaxation to posttraumatic stress.
Applicability to other topic areas will be highlighted throughout.
February 12 from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. EST
