Summary "This book presents some of the exciting new developments and evolving technologies in the field of mental and behavioral health. It is largely for mental health practitioners who already use technology for personal or professional purposes. The target audience includes scholars and practitioners who wish to become entrepreneurs. The book is organized into twelve chapters. Chapter one reviews the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health laws, ethical principles and enforceable ethics standards, and practice guidelines that are essential to successfully incorporating and managing the technologies available. Chapters two and three cover technologies whose main benefit is increasing access to mental health care. It covers telemental health care delivery, and behavioral and mental health apps. Chapters four through seven focus on specific technology-based treatments. It provides brief description on virtual reality psychotherapy, cranial electrotherapy stimulation, neurofeedback, and heart rate variability biofeedback. Chapter eight describes clinical measurement and patient feedback systems. Chapter nine is about technology-assisted deliberate practice for improving psychotherapy effectiveness. Chapter ten shows us how to use technology to advance the training, often without having to leave the office. Chapter 11 explores the topic of how technology creates new possibilities for entrepreneurship, offering a vehicle for innovation in mental health and opportunities for new business ventures to solve the problems the field faces. The final chapter presents a thought process practitioners can use when developing or expanding the scope of their practice via technology."--Preface (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2018 APA, all rights reserved).
