We have been developing guidelines on digital therapy for some time, and these have become even more relevant as working therapeutically has moved online for many. Understanding the different options available for offering CBT and the potential benefits and challenges is important, as is developing best practice in these different media. We released a short guideline for offering therapy remotely in the first few weeks of lockdown, and we hope this longer, more comprehensive document will add to this information, providing context and more thorough consideration of some of the key issues, as well as some top tips for working in this way.
The document begins with an overview of different types of digital therapy and some of what we know about their evidence base. In the second half it outlines practical considerations when working digitally.
Members of the BABCP IT Special Interest Group helped with this work. The SIG aims to provide members with opportunities to learn about digital methods that are used to deliver and augment CBT.
