Behavior Management Training through Telepsychiatry Modalities
Cassie Yu, M.D.
Evidence-based behavior management training interventions are associated with sustained behavioral improvements among children with disruptive behaviors but are not readily available in community settings.
Telepsychiatry can extend these effective treatments to children in clinic and home settings.
In conducting telepsychiatry with families, psychiatrists can both model and coach parents on the concepts of behavior management in real time.
When conducting behavior management training in-clinic, telepsychiatrists may use clinic staff to clarify subtleties in the child's mental status that may not be evident through videoconferencing.
Telepsychiatry with families can be conducted in naturalistic settings such as the home, potentially providing more ecologically valid assessments and interventions.
When conducting behavior management training in-home, telepsychiatrists must develop a safety and crisis plan in case the child's behavior becomes unmanageable during a session.
