ett™ helps better engage patients in their care by experiencing others' lives
Treating child and adolescent mental health problems is complex, and engaging children and families in needed care can be difficult.
The purpose of the video clip is to show how medical professionals learn active listening and active empathy skills and practice them by immersing themselves in the lives of parents. In this way, they can better engage with the children and families in their care.
