    with Jeane Bosch, Ph.D., MPH, and Natalia Escobar Walsh, Ph.D.


    Dr. Jeane Bosch is a Clinical Psychologist with the National Center for PTSD, Training and Dissemination Division. She is a facilitator for a quality improvement project that aims to expand the reach of VA mobile apps to improve care provided to Veterans. She received her Ph.D. din Clinical Psychology from Saint Louis University. Prior to her current position she was an Advanced Research Fellow in Women’s Health at the San Diego VA Healthcare System/UCSD, where her research broadly focused on the intersection between interpersonal trauma, health behaviors and health outcomes. Dr. Bosch is trained in evidence-based treatment for PTSD, has worked with diverse populations including female Veterans, specifically those with histories of Military Sexual Trauma (MST).


    Dr. Natalia Escobar Walsh is a Staff Psychologist with the VASDHS Posttraumatic Stress Disorders Clinical Team as well as an Assistant Clinical Professor at UCSD in the Department of Psychiatry. Dr. Walsh’s academic and professional career has focused on how to address the needs of underserved populations, emphasizing evidence-based psychosocial interventions for trauma-exposed individuals. Dr. Walsh completed her clinical psychology internship through UCSD/Rady Children’s Hospital and her postdoctoral psychology fellowship through UCSD/VASDHS, where she developed expertise in evidence—based trauma-focused interventions across the lifespan. She has also served at-need communities as a bilingual middle school teacher through the Teach for America program and as a social service provider for foster youth and families involved with San Diego County Child Welfare Services. She has used these experiences to inform her clinical and academic practice and continues to apply her expertise in trauma-focused interventions through her role as VASDHS’s mHealth Specialist.

    Course Outline



    12:00 -12:05pm–        Introduction of speakers and opening remarks

    12:05-1:15pm-            Presentation

    1:15-1:30pm -             Q&A/evaluations


    Given the potential broad reach of mobile mental health apps and other digital resources, the National Center for PTSD, under the auspices of the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), has developed a suite of free, publicly available mobile mental health apps and online programs designed to support those with mental health needs such as PTSD and other related concerns.

    Dr. Bosch and Dr. Escobar Walsh will provide an overview of VA mobile mental health apps as well as a comprehensive review of the rationale for incorporating mobile apps into various points of care. Presenters will also offer live demonstrations of the self-care apps and review basic functions of several treatment companion apps (e.g., CPT Coach, PE Coach, CBT-I Coach). Current research and the latest clinical developments in the use of a mobile application for self-care and the enhancement of clinical care, especially in the context of telehealth, will be reviewed.

    Participants will gain knowledge regarding the various steps to clinical integration of mobile apps into treatment, which will include a discussion about privacy and security concerns, as well as ethical and cultural considerations.

    Learning Objectives:
