How Dutch Mental Health Professionals Use Digital Mental Health Tools in Their Work
About This Event
The eMEN Interreg project has been developing training materials on eMental Health, including a series of training videos that will be available soon. These cover therapy sessions through video platforms, online interviewing and assessment, online CBT programmes, writing therapy, virtual reality, wearables, and other areas.
A ‘live’ 1-hour introductory session is taking place online on April 26th and two experienced clinical psychologists from the Netherlands will contribute at the event. Utilisation of digital mental health is further advanced there than in Ireland, and we can learn a lot from their experiences. The event is free-of-charge and should be of interest to Irish organisations/practitioners providing mental health therapy services.
The two speakers, Dr. Ellen Klaassens, PhD and Dr. Tim Wind, PhD are clinical psychologists who work with the Arq Psychotrauma Centre, a large foundation specialising in treatment of trauma in the Netherlands. They will talk about the digital mental health tools they use in their day-to-day work and how to effectively utilise these in various parts of the treatment pathway for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and a range of more complex trauma presentations. A Q&A session will allow participants to ask questions and discuss issues of interest with the speakers.
This event has been awarded 1 CPD point by IACP.
A Zoom link will be provided by email prior to the event.
