Interviews

Introduction to Skype Therapy - Stephan Tobin, Ph.D.

The magazine, Scientific American Mind, listed as fast facts about distance therapy, that research demonstrates that psychotherapy delivered via e-mail, video, chat, voice or texting can effectively treat cognitive, emotional and behavioral disorders, and that even brief therapeutic communiques using mobile phones can help combat eating disorders, alcohol abuse, cigarette smoking and anxiety. Although numerous studies show that video-based therapy can be as effective as in-person therapy, needless to say, there are many complex clinical issues to consider, as well as legal and ethical issues. In this program, first, Dr. Stephan Tobin will explain to us how he uses Skype Therapy.

Long-Term Therapy using Skype - Kevin McMahon, LCSW

Can therapy, especially long-term psychotherapy, really be effective over a computer screen? And over a distance of many miles? According to a clinical psychologist quoted in Scientific American Mind, “the important thing is that you’re practicing competently, no matter how you’re delivering the therapy.” Still, there are some issues and problems. Most providers of Skype Therapy seen to agree that it works best when the initial contact is face-to face, as is the case in the therapy Kevin McMahon will present in this interview.
