Abstract

Telepsychiatry is the new branch of psychiatry. The method of the treatment gives new possibility to the physician and
the patient, including videoconferencing, videoeducation, compliance control and different form of trainings. Telemedicine
was well confirmed in psychiatry as the equivalent therapeutic way of treatment. Interesting is if telemedicine
may be useful for psychotherapy.
Authors overviewed the research studies on application of telemedicine in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). This school
of psychotherapy has very good medical evidence for its effectiveness in the treatment of different psychiatric illnesses.
The question was if it may be effective when used in telemedical mode.
Our analysis indicated, that CBT is the same effective when performed via videoconferencing system and in traditional
way. In the end authors tried to discuss, if the telemedical contact with psychotherapist may substitute the real face
to face contact.
