How does it work?
Theravue is based on over 30 years of research by our Chief Scientist Dr. Bruce Wampold of the University of Wisconsin. Our interactive system uses the science of deliberate practice to improve therapist effectiveness and client outcomes. Here's how it works:
- The professor of a psychotherapy class creates a course for their students and assigns practice cases that contain videos of realistic client scenarios.
- Using their web camera, students respond to practice case videos as if they were in the room with the client.
- Once a response is submitted, the student's professor reviews the response and provides feedback to the student.
How large is Theravue's library of videos?
Because Theravue regularly adds more videos to its library, the number will always grow. Theravue aims to provide users with videos that are as diverse as possible in terms of cultural backgrounds, social backgrounds, personal issues, and situations.
How much does it cost?
Theravue is completely free for professors. The price for students is dependent on how long the course is, at $20 per month.
What is HIPAA?
HIPAA is short for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, which was passed by the United States congress in 1996. It specifies rules and regulations relating to the storage and transmission of Protected Health Information (PHI). Many online video conferencing services such as Skype and Google Hangouts are NOT HIPAA-compliant, which means that it is not legal use such services to discuss or share confidential client information. Therauve, however, is 100% HIPAA-compliant.
