Integration of a Virtual Hope Box Mobile Application into Clinical Care


 

DCoE Webinar Series (T2): October 2014
 

Date/Time: October 16, 2014; 1-2:30 p.m. (EDT)
 

Several behavioral health treatments have proven useful for patients who feel hopeless and may be considering suicide or self-harm. One tool used by providers is the “hope box”. Therapists suggest that their patients fill a shoe box (or other container) with items that remind them of why their life is worth living, such as supportive letters from loved ones, their favorite music CDs, photos, reminders of their accomplishments, or a list of things they want to do. 

However, since such a box is awkward to carry, it may not always be handy when a patient needs it most. Using the principles of the original hope box, a smartphone app was created called the “Virtual Hope Box” (VHB). As with its namesake, patients choose items, but the “container” is more portable and more private—and it’s always with them. Patients can also add more-accessible types of content like music files and video files.

This webinar is designed to get the word out about Virtual Hope Box to clinicians, and show how smartphone apps can empower and engage patients in their own care.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Describe the social paradigm shift to mobile health among younger service members.
  • Articulate the potential benefits of mobile personal technologies as accessories to behavioral health treatment.
  • Examine the value of clinical involvement in patient use of health related smartphone apps.
  • Incorporate key principles behind hope box use in clinical therapy.
