Covid-19 Resources for Clinical Psychologists 

For many clinical psychologists, adapting to the Covid-19 pandemic means transitioning from in-person assessment and psychotherapy to the use of remote platforms. Several entities have begun compiling resources to help with this transition (see ‘Links to Outside Resources’ towards end). Rather than duplicate efforts, the Society of Clinical Psychology has decided to compile a list of recent peer-reviewed papers on telepsychology organized by treatment area. This is a work in progress. We hope to update this list as new resources are identified. If you have a resource to suggest adding to this list, please go to our draft in Google Docs. Then find or add the appropriate category and insert using ‘suggested edits’. This way we can tell if changes have been made and can refresh the information on the website. Please also add your name to the ‘contributors’ list at the very bottom, unless you wish to remain anonymous. Other questions or suggestions about this list, send us an email
