This article describes 5 clinical practice models:
(1) guiding service users to safe and effective online websites and tools (through brief discussion, printed materials, and/or links on our service website);
(2) incorporating online referrals into case management;
(3) coaching clients/patients as they work through online programs; and
(4) & (5) extending the impact of psychological therapies by using online resources as an adjunct to symptom-focused interventions and comprehensive therapy.
