Behavioral Care at the Crossroads: Serving Clients/Patients with 21st Century Technologies With the 21st Century

This keynote will discuss the role of apps, telehealth, federal and state law, choices regarding technology such as videoconferencing, text messaging, email, and telephone as well as virtual and augmented reality, artificial intelligence, sensors, and robotics. It will focus on the evidence base related to using such technologies, the legal issues involved, and the role of recently published association standards, guidelines, competencies, and most importantly, where to get more information. Overall, it will help the participant envision the professional use of 21st Century tools for enhancing clinical care, research, policy, and education.

Telebehavioral Health Legal & Ethical Best Practices: Dos and Don’ts

Dr. Maheu of the TBHI Faculty will define telebehavioral health terminology, introduce basic concepts, review the research history; outline risks and benefits and be introduced to the Online Clinical Practice Management (OCPM) model of best practices. Meta-analyses will be reviewed as per recent data accumulated by Hilty and colleagues (2014); Godleski and colleagues (2013) and others. Studies reviewing effective online treatments for depression have undergone meta-analytic review (Mishkin and Colleagues, 2014). Current state laws and professional association standards and guidelines, as well as recently published telebehavioral health competencies, will be covered (Maheu et. al., 2017).
