Adolescents have been raised in a digital world and become competent in online modes of communication and connection. As a result, there are now a range of effective computerized therapeutic interventions for young people, and methods of online counselling and teletherapy have grown in sophistication. As with all approaches and interventions, it is therapist competency that can serve as the greatest strength or limitation in helping the client achieve successful outcomes.

Online Classroom Delivery

Our online classes are run as tutorials, that involve students and their lecturer logging into our online portal Zoom™ simultaneously.

Zoom™ provides and integrative online environment for students and Lecturers to interact and engage in the learning. This platform facilitates discussion polls, sharing of slides, videos resources and much, much more.

To foster more intimate learning environments the use of breakout rooms is also implemented, allowing for the safe and experiential triadic learning practice that we have found so successful.

All of our sessions are accessible through computer and mobile devices and we have a structured and robust technology department to support all faculty and students through their online learning journey. To encourage flexibility, and ss best practice, we also record all our sessions, these are made accessible only to the students in that class to review content whenever is convenient to them!
