October 15, 2017, 4-6 pm

This presentation will outline the key elements for self-training in the provision of online care. We will discuss the history of telemental health and review the research that demonstrates clinical efficacy. We will discuss generalizing therapeutic frameworks and practice skills from the in-person visit to the on-line visit. We will discuss ethical concerns and review the current practice standards and care guidelines that address confidentiality, HIPPA compliance and risk management. Current licensing barriers and other administrative challenges will be reviewed. A case presentation will demonstrate the use of telemental health in a long-term psychotherapy case.
