Webinar: Telehealth delivery of Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) with Hispanic Youth before and during COVID-19
May 10, 2021

 

Hispanic youths are less likely to have access to mental health services and more likely to prematurely terminate services when they do engage in treatment. Common barriers to accessing mental health care include: (a) limited availability of linguistically appropriate services for Spanish-speaking children and families; (b) limited services available in rural areas; (c) lack of transportation to mental health facilities; (d) being under- or uninsured; (e) caregiver employment barriers (e.g., scheduled work hours, leave restrictions; and more recently (f) a global pandemic which has shut down most in-person mental health services for over a year. Telehealth (i.e., the use of interactive technologies such as videoconferencing via computer and/or tablet to deliver mental health services) is an alternative to office-based delivery of treatment which can address disparities in access to care. This introductory webinar will describe the state of the evidence for telehealth delivery of Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) for underserved Hispanic youth, offer logistical and practical tips for getting started (e.g., equipment, procedures, documentation, ethical and safety considerations), and demonstrate culturally and linguistically tailored resources. Participants will also learn about challenges, facilitators, and special considerations for delivery of TF-CBT via telehealth with Hispanic youth before and during the COVID-19 global pandemic.
