Counselor Roseann Bennett Addresses The Pros And Cons Of Telemedicine

Roseann Bennett is one of the founders of a New Jersey nonprofit mental health organization, the Center for Treatment and Assessment. She is a graduate of Seton Hall University, earning her master’s degree there as well as her Ed.S. in marriage and family therapy.

She is now a licensed marriage and family therapist and Bennett has dedicated her career to helping people with mental health challenges and raising awareness about mental health in general.

It was along with her husband, Dr. Todd Bennett, that she founded the Center for Treatment and Assessment. They have been helping people through this organization for a decade now. She says it took a lot of hard work and determination to make this nonprofit into the success it now is. They help everyone who needs it regardless of the insurance they carry or what their financial means are.

In her interview with IdeaMensch; Looking To the Future of Therapy, Roseann Bennett says that a new trend she is seeing more and more of is telemedicine. Technological advances have resulted in people being able to do counseling via new ways such as by email, texting, and apps like Skype. She says while these can offer some advantages none of them can completely replace sitting down and having a live interaction with a good therapist.

Roseann Bennett is among the pros of telemedicine. She lists that it is convenient and that which is one of its biggest selling points. She also says that it makes getting therapy more accessible and more affordable. People don’t have to schedule a visit and then physically go to see the counselor in their office.

However, it doesn’t provide real-life human interaction, so telemedicine doesn’t offer the benefits of going to see a real counselor. She says it also lacks privacy because of data breaches. Additionally, Roseann Bennett says that it increases the chances of misdiagnosing a condition.
