Telepsychiatry: The risk of estrangement
aPsihijatrijska služba, Zdravstveni centar, Valjevo
bClinical Center Kragujevac, Clinic of Psychiatry
Telepsychiatry is based on the use of telecommunication systems in the process of organizing systems of psychiatric institutions and helping the treatment of psychiatric patients. The consequence of the specific features of informatics technologies is that inside the domain of psychiatric pathology and psychiatric treatment of an individual disorder itself, there is a deviation from the classic psychiatrist-client treatment, 'face to face'. Those psychiatrists who promote the classic treatment accept these changes with difficulties, believing that the application of the new technology is not adequate and that there is a possibility of estrangement from patients. Furthermore, cultural barriers could also be an obstacle, not only due to the application of telepsychiatric services, but also since the criteria for 'transcultural psychiatry' need to be established as well. Telepsychiatric services will have more supporters in future. Their use will subtly complement the existing traditional approach and expand the range of application of psychiatric techniques.
