Course Description

The main thrust in this Course is to solve the Paradox of Telepractice and address the “X-Factors” that technology-mediated care to overcome the potentially crippling effect of being conducted at a distance… indeed, to more than overcome the obvious disadvantages, to the point of often actually being preferred in a fair comparison with in-person work? Many professionals struggle with the concept that in some instances, telepractice is not only on par to in-person mental health, but may be superior. As technology advances, we can expect more and more development of tools to assist us do our work in more efficient, more comprehensive and more extensive ways.

  • Rather than just rolling with the clinical punches thrown by the “remoteness” or distance issue, how can we put our discoveries to use and throw our weight behind those X-Factors to benefit the health both of our clients and of our practice?
  • In which precise ways are technological approaches an enhancement rather than a limiting factor in mental health care?
  • Which are the new technologies that can be used to benefit a specific client population, either synchronously or asynchronously?
  • How can we perhaps devise new approaches to working with the populations with whom we have specialized?
  • How can telepractice intakes, informed consent and emergencies be handled best?
  • How does one handle emergencies legally, ethically and clinically?
