1-HOUR WEBINAR - Distance Credentialed Counselor (DCC): Who, What, When, Where & How?

We’re living in a new era: In Google We Trust.

Internet health-related information and services are sought by a whopping 80% of online users. A recent Mayo Clinic study showed that 75% of Americans would be comfortable seeing their medical practitioner online. By addressing the consumer-driven need in behavioral care, telemental health (also known as “Distance Counseling”) allows clinicians like you to legally and ethically serve more clients from larger geographic areas.

The DCC – the most nationally recognized telemental health credential in online counseling – prepares counselors, social workers and other professionals to competently and confidently practice telemental health. In this webinar with Dr. Maheu, the world’s leading telemental health trainer, you’ll learn how to experience telemental health training from TMHI to become a Distance Credentialed Counselor (DCC). Explore how you can exponentially increase your practice and reach a greater number of clients who need your help.
