Abstract

The use of telepsychology technology to deliver psychological services to geographically dispersed and isolated populations is on the rise. The increasing use of technology has not necessarily been accompanied by an enhancement in technology instruction by psychology training programs. A model of doctoral training is offered that integrates telepsychology technology throughout its curriculum, training, and program administration. Results from an evaluation of the acceptability and perceived effectiveness of the model in a graduate training program is presented along with recommendations for telepsychology training in professional psychology.
