How do I Engage in Psychotherapy Online?

Therapeutic Practice

Living in this constantly evolving world requires adaptation in digital technology for efficiency.

Using paper and pencil are long gone- they take enormous amount of time as opposed to working on a computer, tablet, or mobile phone. Keeping and utilizing piles of paper are now unnecessary and inefficient, as technology allows you to keep all your data and information in digital form. Essentially, as therapists, you can now review, search, and organize notes on therapeutic sessions electronically.

Paper and pencil allow you to keep track of an individual client case, but could only be efficient when used on one on one therapeutic session, whereas with digital form, you are able to track multiple client records and documentations online.

As therapists, consider the convenience of being able to access client cases digitally at any time, anywhere.

MyOutcomes is a highly effective tool to conveniently utilize in Psychotherapy online as it provides both clients and therapists the advantage of accessing electronic records through digital management system for feedback informed treatment and to track therapeutic progress.

Below are practical recommendations as to engaging in therapeutic practice online through MyOutcomes:
