The continued growth of online therapy is highlighted in a recent New York Times article about telepsychiatry, taking a look at video conferencing as a tool that makes doctors and patients more accessible to each other.
The article illustrates how video conferencing allows participants to relax within their own space. In one real-life example, a patient is described as reclining in a poolside lounge chair and sipping a drink as she begins on online session with her therapist. Aside from this admittedly dramatic — though nevertheless realistic — application, video conferencing brings practical benefits to the world of counseling and psychiatry:
- Accommdates patients who are averse to office visits
- Spares the inconvenience and expense of travel for patients and doctors
- Saves on office infrastructure for therapists who choose to work from home
