Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Virtual Center for Trauma Therapy
by Truong, Bonnie Ann, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2019, 60; 13903929
Abstract (Summary)

Traumatic events have the potential to bring adverse consequences to the lives of those who experience them. With more than half of Americans exposed to a traumatic event in their lifetime, there is a significant opportunity to help individuals handle the aftermath of trauma to protect against its potential long-term, negative effects. Virtual Center for Trauma Therapy’s mission is to provide accessible, evidence-based mental health care treatments for psychological trauma through telehealth technology. It especially seeks to assist individuals with restricted access to trauma-informed mental health care in California, including those with limited availability and lack of qualified providers in their area. Clients will be able to conveniently request and receive psychological therapy for their trauma 24 hours a day, seven days a week from their choice of licensed mental health care providers in their own preferred environment. As the telehealth industry continues to expand, increases in the demand for services will promote strong growth for the company. This business proposal will elaborate on how Virtual Center for Trauma Therapy plans to become the premier choice for trauma-informed care and reduce mental health care disparities in the communities it serves.
