As you are aware, the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic has now spread within Canada and to Nova Scotia. In anticipation of this crisis, we have carefully considered how to balance the need for social distancing, while still being able to provide the very best psychological services to our current and future clients.
Telepsychology includes psychological services provided via secure internet technology. Such services are offered in place of face-to-face sessions, in situations where in-person sessions are impossible or inconvenient to arrange. Telepsychology has the same intention or purpose as conventional psychotherapy. It involves arranging an appointment time between the client and the psychological service provider (therapist) when both parties can interface from a computer, smartphone, or iPad, using a webcam and an internet connection.
We have carefully researched the options available. This involved significant consultation with IT security specialists, considering federal and provincial regulations pertinent to the protection of your Personal Health Information, and reviewing professional standards and recommendations for psychologists providing telepsychology. We have chosen to use SecureVideo.com for our current telepsychology platform. It offers one of the most secure options at the present time, including a 256-bit AES-encrypted signaling and media stream. This service integrates the reliable and widely used Zoom videoconferencing engine, with some additional security features. Please contact us for more information about the telepsychology services we offer. Under the present circumstances, we are unable to use our regular phone line, messages will be infrequently checked, and our fax line is not always open or able to received messages. Email is the best way to communicate: firstname.lastname@example.org.
These are unprecedented and uncertain times. Know that we are committed to our current and future clients, as well as to providing the same high-quality mental health services we are known for. We look forward to continuing to help our clients overcome whatever challenges they face and achieve their personal goals in the months and years to come.
