E-Therapy for Social Work Professionals: A Curriculum
by Rosales, Daphne, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2020, 81; 27830510
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of the curriculum is to educate social work practitioners on e-therapy. This curriculum consists of five modules, where the entire curriculum is designed to be 8 hours long with a 30-minute break if facilitated within one session. The curriculum aims to assist in developing an understanding of e-therapy, the ethics that interplay while conducting the online therapy, and the effectiveness of common treatment approaches used in e-therapy. Additionally, the curriculum assists in developing skills in conducting e-therapy sessions, including how one could use different types of technologies. Finally, the curriculum aims to teach professional social workers how to create a website or profile with an existing company to practice e-therapy. Due to the limited number of curricula aimed towards education on e-therapy, this curriculum offers insight into a generally unfamiliar realm of therapeutic services, further developing competent social work practitioners in a technologically advancing society.
