My guest today is Dr. Roseanne Cappanna-Hodge. She has been a successful psychologist, helping children and adults alike. Her trailblazing book, The Teletherapy Toolkit™: Therapist Handbook for Treating Children and Teens, can help parents and professionals and anyone looking to learn exactly what they need to do help the kids and teens they work with.
As a practicing psychologist, Dr. Roseann could see the writing on the wall when the Corona Virus became a global concern. In January of 2020, Dr. Roseann founded The Global Institute of Children’s Mental Health, advocating for holistic treatment in mental health, believing all symptoms can be reversed or reduced.
Forbes has called her “a thought-leader in children’s mental health.” Her focus is to change the way we view mental health and treatment for it, especially when it comes to children. It’s important – now, in these uncertain times, more than ever – to be able to effectively guide one’s patients, students, clients and children through their chosen therapies successfully. Dr. Roseann’s evidence-based holistic approach can help many children (and their parents and families) who have tried everything else under the sun.
