e-NET: La terapia dell’esposizione narrativa virtuale sfide e opportunità nell’offrire trattamenti per il trauma da remoto. Nell’ambito della salute mentale, a fronte dei diversi tentativi di accrescere l’accesso a cure basate sull’evidenza, soltanto un numero ristretto di pazienti riceve trattamenti trauma-focali adeguati. L’innovazione tecnologica è sempre più centrale nella facilitazione di scambi comunicativi virtuali rendendo non più necessario che il terapeuta e il paziente si trovino nello stesso luogo fisico. La e-NET, cioè la versione online del trattamento della Terapia dell’Esposizione Narrativa, rappresenta un’opzione ecologica ed economica per offrire terapie focalizzate sul trauma, oltre i confini e le restrizioni di movimento, superando le barriere per raggiungere popolazioni che non hanno, solitamente, un accesso semplice ai trattamenti. I traduttori e i professionisti sanitari possono accedere alla stanza virtuale della terapia in qualsiasi momento e non solo per offrire il trattamento ma anche per formare, dare supporto e fare supervisioni a terapeuti che lavorano sul trauma in tutto il mondo. L’articolo affronta le opportunità e le sfide di questo approccio innovativo, che si radica nel protocollo NET tradizionale, e propone casi clinici. I test post-trattamento dimostrano che la procedura è fattibile ed efficace e che sia necessaria una valutazione scientifica rigorosa come prossimo passo.
