About the presentation:

Suicide rates in youth have been steadily increasing in the United States, with Utah having one of the highest incidences of youth suicides. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic has placed a collective stress on the community and healthcare system.

In a time when hospitals are overburdened, and the risk of exposure is high in healthcare settings, inpatient hospitalization and Emergency Department visits for suicidal patients should be minimized. However, the rapid shift to practicing psychotherapy via telehealth encompasses unique challenges for providers treating youth at risk for suicide.

Dr. Rowley will present research-based practice guidelines on assessing and treating suicidality in youth via telehealth, with a focus on safety planning and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) skills. Ethical concerns will be discussed, as well as special considerations for treating diverse populations that are at risk for suicide, including LGBTQA+ and black adolescents.

About the presenter:

Laura Rowley, Ph.D., licensed clinical psychologist. Laura obtained her doctorate from Wayne State University. She completed her APA-accredited internship and postdoctoral fellowship at Primary Children’s Hospital as a member of the Dialectical Behavior Therapy team for adolescents and families. She is currently on the DBT team at the Utah Center for Evidence Based Treatment providing services for adolescents and adults.

Commuting alone has the potential to eat up a large chunk of your time and your wallet. Throw in some variables like traffic accidents, road construction and unexpected inclement weather and suddenly you’re late, creating a domino effect. Maybe your daycare or doctor charges late fees. Perhaps your doctor is booked out, so your missed appointment pushes you out another two weeks before you can re-schedule. Enter Telehealth. This new-fangled treatment modality can be a godsend for long commuters and bridges the gap between patient’s access to care.

 So, what is telehealth anyway? Telehealth in a nutshell is distribution of medical services and interventions using communication via phone or video conferencing. In a behavioral health setting, telehealth (or teletherapy) happens exactly the way it would in a therapy office except virtually! You go through the same informed consent, sign your intake forms, and connect with your provider from the comfort of your home using a laptop or even your smart phone. This type of therapy offers numerous advantages not only for folks who can’t make the drive, but also for those who are bound by their work schedules or have limited physical mobility. With more businesses turning toward remote work, the environment may enjoy some benefits as well with reduced CO2 emissions. 

 If you feel that therapy is just out of your reach, consider telehealth as an option. UCEBT assesses fitness for telepsychology and offers virtual sessions with licensed providers for the same cost as in-office appointments. Visit our new client page here to get started.
