During the COVID-19 pandemic, psychological therapies will need to be delivered remotely rather than face-to-face. To support this changed approach, investigators from the Oxford Health BRC Precision Psychological Therapies theme have made available a range of guidance on the remote delivery of evidence-based psychological treatments.
Created by Professor Anke Ehlers and David M Clark’s team, the materials are collected on the OxCADAT website and are free to access. They include webinars and written guidance on remote delivery of therapy for PTSD, traumatic bereavement, social anxiety, and panic disorder. Guidance on the treatment of PTSD following critical illness and intensive care admission as well as guidance for evidence-based wellbeing and mental health support for NHS frontline staff is also available.
In addition Professor Paul Salkovskis’s team have created webinars on remote psychological therapy for health anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorder along with accompanying guidance documents.
Further guidance on the remote treatment of eating disorders and for supporting the mental health of children, young people and families is also available.
