[smart_track_player url=”″ title=”Adapting New Ways of Doing Things in Private Practice Because of Difficult Circumstances with Roseann Capanna-Hodge” background=”default” ]


I’m hoping 2021 will be a new year of great experiences and opportunities after what we went through in 2020. Today’s show covers one specific way that clinicians have had to adapt to new ways of doing things because of difficult circumstances. Join us to learn more.

Roseann Capanna-Hodge is an integrative and pediatric mental health expert. She’s the founder and director of the Global Institute for Children’s Mental Health and Dr. Roseann and Associates.  Roseann had a simple idea during the pandemic about doing therapeutic activities via Zoom and telehealth sessions. This realization led to her writing the first-ever book on the subject. She’s here to share about her book, its inspiration, and the mental shifts that have become necessary.

What We’ll Learn

    • Roseann’s “Corona Creative Period,” in which she wrote four books and started a podcast
    • How Roseann discovered that her superpower is thriving in times of crisis
    • Making the shift to increased teletherapy and decreased in-person therapy
    • How Roseann wrote her book on teletherapy activities in 31 days to help other therapists adapt and cope with the new shift
    • How a clinician has to shift to work with kids and teens via teletherapy
    • Roseann’s first “Aha” was realizing that a therapist can be just as effective via teletherapy as in person
    • How to combat the feelings of isolation that therapists feel
    • Examples of teletherapy activities in Roseann’s book
    • How Roseann approached the planning and writing process
    • Why Roseann created her list of 100 coping statements, her ten-year compilation to help when people of all ages feel uncomfortable (See Resources)
