Providers' voices on telebehavioral health: survey of an outpatient counseling agency in Alaska

Psychol Serv. 2012 Aug;9(3):316-7. doi: 10.1037/a0026154.


Hope Counseling Center sought to expand behavioral health services to underserved populations in Alaska by offering telebehavioral health services. Providers completed a questionnaire addressing their experiences, opinions, and training needs as they relate to telebehavioral health. Open conversations about the training needs, limitations, and benefits of telebehavioral health supported program development and led to training on new equipment, rapport building, and telebehavioral health outcome studies.
