How can mental health providers Use TAO?
TAO AS A TOOL FOR CLIENT EDUCATION and engagement
TAO enhances client engagement with online education, tools to practice new skills, and accountability. Clients learn mindfulness meditation, relaxation strategies, how to challenge cognitive distortion, positive psychology skills, and much more.
TAO as a tool for Client Accountability
The Therapist Dashboard displays client activity in the platform, providing client accountability and increasing client compliance with treatment recommendations.
TAO AS A TOOL FOR ONLINE THERAPY
TAO includes a HIPAA compliant, videoconferencing tool that allows you to conduct online sessions securely. Videoconference sessions can include use of the progress measure to monitor client symptoms and improvement. The progress graph can be shared with the client during videoconference sessions when this is clinically appropriate.
TAO as a tool for expanding practice
TAO can be paired with brief sessions, online or face-to-face. Research has shown it to be as effective or more effective with 15-30 minute online or face-to-face sessions as traditional 50 minute weekly face-to-face therapy. You can see two or three times as many people without twice the work.
