The workshop will begin by first identifying and discussing barriers that participants face when it comes to accessing in-person services. Next, we will examine how a large state department of corrections has leveraged virtual services in addressing these barriers. Attendees will explore utilizing technology for virtual treatment, including group and individual sessions, and self-directed programming. The workshop aims to equip participants with practical strategies for implementing virtual services within their own agencies. Emphasis will be placed on understanding the pivotal role of technology in overcoming obstacles such as transportation, scheduling conflicts, and housing instability. By the end, participants will be empowered with strategies to utilize technology effectively, ultimately enhancing accessibility and outcomes.
