Risk Assessment and Crisis Intervention for Youth in a Time of Telehealth

About the Course

This article highlights important considerations to providing these services in a school-based telehealth modality. Symptom clusters that put youth at risk of harm to self are described. Best practice therapeutic modalities that can be disseminated in a school-based telehealth modality, such as cognitive behavior therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and mindfulness-based approaches, are reviewed. Although there is growing empirical literature for these school-based prevention and intervention approaches, additional research is needed to determine how to best support at-risk youth remotely.

This course is based on the reading-based online article, Risk Assessment and Crisis Intervention for Youth in a Time of Telehealth created by Melissa Holland, PhD et al. in 2021.
