The Therapist Will Skype You Now
Technology is everywhere. You see the ubiquitous smartphone or tablet in the hands of the five-year-old in his car seat, the 15-year-old texting friends and the 35-year-old keeping up with the office while vacationing.
Now School of Social Work professor Namkee Choi is using technology in an innovative way for older generations: bringing psychotherapy to aging adults' homes through Skype.
Choi's research has shown that medically ill, homebound older adults are more vulnerable to depression than their more active peers. Isolation and multiple stressors, Choi explains, can contribute to the problem.
