Staff Perspective: The Virtual Hope Box!

Sharon Birman, Psy.D.

Electronic Health (eHealth) has long been integrated into the mental health field allowing for healthcare practices supported by electronic processes or communication.  One type of eHealth is Mobile Health (or mHealth) interventions, which refers to the use of mobile devices for a number of activities that could include Internet access or searches, text messaging as well as smart phone applications that could be used within a mental health context. Although research remains limited, attention to mobile apps has been rapidly growing due to the increased use of technology in the mental health field.  Mobile mental health support can be very simple but effective, providing users with convenience, anonymity, consistency and round-the-clock service.  Often, technology is utilized to complement traditional therapy rather than replace it.

Staff Perspective: Group vs. Individual Treatment with Cognitive Processing Therapy

Debra Nofziger, Psy.D.

To “group” or not to “group”…. Have you ever found yourself asking that question as a provider?  There is, of course, the general concept of group theory and what patients work best in a group and those that don’t.  It can be easy to spot people who will not interact with others well, to one extreme or the other.  But it can be harder as a provider to determine the more intricate question of what type of behavioral health problem can be better served in a group format instead of individual. 

Guest Perspective: Resilience as Acceptance

My husband and I joined the military in 2008 as psychology residents with the vague, distant understanding that deployment was a possibility for both of us. Just like anything that seems stressful and perhaps mildly unpleasant, but too far in the future, we paid little attention to our fears and concerns. However, I don’t think either of us anticipated that our experience with deployment would coincide with the birth of our one and only child.

Staff Perspective: The Healthcare of Transgender Service Members - A Discussion on Recent Policy Developments

Laura Cho-Stutler, Psy.D.

With the 2011 repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, and Don’t Pursue policy, which later became known as Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT), the transgender military population was left unprotected with an increased uncertainty about their status in the US military.  They were unable to join the military and if already serving, being identified as a transgender individual could be grounds for involuntary separation or denial of reenlistment (Goldbach & Castron, 2016; Kerrigan, 2012).

Staff Perspective: The Treatment Rationale - Blueprints of Psychotherapy

Jenna Ermold, Ph.D.

Imagine that you want to build a house -- or better yet, that you NEED to build a house to get respite from the elements and to feel safe and comfortable. Unsure where to begin, you seek out a builder to help guide you in this process. You might feel a sense of trepidation. What if this builder doesn’t understand your needs or the kind of house you’re hoping for? Worse yet, what if the houses they build aren’t solid, long-lasting, and sound? Now imagine meeting with that builder and getting vague and confusing details about the building plan with no glimpse of a blueprint, but having to consent to the project. Oh... and you also are required to put down a significant deposit.
