Therapy was once limited to “talk therapy” only, with little emphasis placed on outside tools or support. But using effective tools to address mental health concerns can make all the difference. It is critical for helping professionals to be equipped with a variety of tools when addressing the needs of diverse populations. We can no longer deny the impact that technology has on everyone. Technology can assist with expanding the ability to assist underserved populations, who would not otherwise have access to specialized services. Technology can serve as a bridge to connect various populations with the help that is needed. Often, therapists, social workers, and others in the helping fields shy away from technology. However, technology is here to stay, and this presentation will empower professionals to utilize technology while adhering to ethical guidelines. Participants will learn how to leverage technology in the therapy room with consideration for multicultural implications.
