About the Course:
Information and Communication Technology (ICT) use became increasingly common for mental health providers in the years leading up to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the COVID-19 pandemic changed the scope of ICT use for mental health providers globally. With in-person services abruptly restricted, almost all communication with clients shifted to ICTs. This study explores the significant paradigm shift toward ICTs that occurred as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, affecting mental health providers on a global level. Additionally, the study discussed in this article/course details the impact of this transition upon mental health practice. In addition to discussing the paradigm shift and its impact upon the practice of mental health, this article/course also explores the implications for mental health providers and themes for practice and research in a post-COVID-19 world.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, Responding to COVID-19 created by Faye Mishna, PhD, Elizabeth Milne, and Marion Bogo in 2020.
