The Level I Certification package is best for you if you work within an agency setting that is already organized to legally and ethically deliver telemental health or telebehavioral health (telepsychiatry, telepsychology, distance counseling etc.). It will provide you with a prudent yet exciting look at legal, ethical and clinical guidance about how to get started and deliver direct care via telephone and videoconferencing. This training package is for you if your organization has dealt with the difficult legal, ethical policy issues, and you just want to understand your basic legal and ethical requirements. It is the program of choice for you if you are seeking an easy, convenient way to think through the large issues to delivering behavioral care by telephone and video.

The Level II Certification package is best for you if you need to develop a telepractice program of your own, without an information technology department, legal office, billing or clinical staff to help you think through the details. The Level II Certification package 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, documentation (e.g. intake, informed consent, and termination documents with reference 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. The Level II Certification package certification program 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 well on your way to feeling competent and confident about handling a wide variety of challenging situations posed by delivering telemental health and telebehavioral health care.

The Level II Certification package training program 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 telebehavioral professional.
