Click questions below for detailed answers.

The Gold Certificate discounted training package is best for you if you work within an agency setting that is already organized to legally and ethically deliver tele-mental health or tele-behavioral health (telepsychiatry, telepsychology, distance counseling etc.) You need a well-considered look at legal, ethical and clinical guidance about how to get started and deliver direct care. Your organization has dealt with the legal and ethical policy and risk management issues, and you just want to understand your basic legal and ethical requirements. You need training to think through the large issues to operate as a professional when delivering care through telephone and video.

The Platinum Certificate discounted training package is best for you if you need to develop a distance counseling program of your own, without an information technology department, legal office, billing or clinical staff to help you think through the details. The Platinum Certificate program will help you choose your technology, decide whether or not to use videoconferencing, email, text-messaging and other technologies; set up your virtual office to follow current telepractice guidelines and learn how to get paid for your services. It will help you choose your most appropriate private, secure technology that meets your federal and state law. It will give you an understanding of how you to develop appropriate clinical protocols, intake, informed consent, and termination processes with consideration to the specific technological modalities you choose. It will help you develop and implement your emergency plans, build them into your informed consent processes and have clinically appropriate relationships with providers in your client/patient’s local community to confidently handle emergencies and crises. This Platinum Certificate Training package will also guide you to finding and contracting with a malpractice carrier that will maximally help you manage risk. It gives you the competencies required by legal and ethical bodies, which include individual state boards, provinces and professional associations in the behavioral community. As a result of completing this training, you will be competent and confident about handling a wide variety of challenging situations posed by delivering telemental health care.

The Platinum Certificate training program then, is designed for the hospital, clinic, agency, or group and individual practitioner who is responsible for program design and implementation. It provides a true roadmap for how to get started with technical, clinical, legal and ethical policy decisions as well as practical program implementation. Numerous case examples, checklists, sample documents and more are available for you to maximize your time and effort. This program provides you with a Certificate that will distinguish you as a true professional.
