Today's guest is Dr. Frank Corigliano, currently a Postdoctoral Psychology Resident specializing in telepsychology in New York. He is working on two exciting projects at the intersection of psychology and technology. Dr. Corigliano sees patients for individual and couples therapy privately and at the Institute for Human Identity. In addition to seeing patient’s onsite, Dr. Corigliano is working with the institute for Human Identity to develop telepsychology services such as using video for therapy which would allow the institute to offer their services throughout New York State.

The second project Dr. Corigliano is working on, and the one we will be discussing today, is a Supportive Televisiting Program of the Social Service Board at the New York Society for Ethical Culture. Televisitng uses live, real-time video and audio to allow kids to "visit" through the TV, with their incarcerated parent.

Dr. Corigliano earned a Master’s degree from Teachers College, Columbia University and a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from St. John’s University. He trained at the Beck Institute in Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT).

Join Jim and Dr. Corigliano in a discussion on the growth of telepsychology and how he sees it expanding in the future.
