But with the COVID-19 pandemic, telehealth was thrust to the forefront, forcing patients and providers to adapt to online therapy formats quickly. The study in the link provides some interesting preliminary findings on how DBT therapists use telehealth and their experiences with it. It offers some great insights that could guide future research and practice.
