Origins & Purpose of Documentation Requirements for Psychologists Page

We thank Division 31 of the American Psychological Association for their permission to re-post these state-based regulations for psychologists below. Our intent is to provide you with the requirements to help you develop appropriate telehealth-related forms for use with citizens of the states you wish to serve. If you are not a psychologist, these state-based regulations can help you have an intelligent conversation with your state licensing board, or at the very least, point you in the right direction when you search any state’s website to develop your own forms.

Legal Counsel Required for TBHI Practice

As throughout the TBHI  professional training and certification processes, we strongly encourage you to use such information at your own risk, and only with the guidance of a telehealth-informed attorney to finalize any forms that you use with clients/patients. Telehealth legalese in any given state may be more complicated than meets the eye.

For updates, contact your board directly. TBHI disavows any responsibility for your use of these forms, with or without an attorney to advise you.
