There are an increasing number of websites and apps being created to help people with drug and alcohol and/or mental health issues.
Can these tools be used to complement practice with clients?
ReachOut has developed a professional development package for information on young people’s online context, and guidance on using technology in service delivery to make services more accessible and engaging for young people.
Part 1: Technology and Young People
Part 2: Technology 101
Part 3: Technology in Practice
Part 4: Ethics and Boundaries
The package has PowerPoint presentations, quizzes, and case studies. You can work at your own pace through the modules. You will have to sign up for a “professional account” to access the information.
We’ll be sure to cover more about what’s available in terms of quality apps over the coming weeks.
