Telephone administered psychotherapy - an option to optimize the treatment for patients with mental health problems?
Few individuals who could benefit from psychotherapy for depression actually receive it. Telephone psychotherapy and organized depression care programs have the potential to greatly increase the population of patients receiving evidence-based care. At this seminar Dr. Ludman will present the original Seattle primary-care based telephone psychotherapy study and an overview of recent efforts to adapt and extend outreach psychotherapy models worldwide.
