Host Telemental Health Training / Telebehavioral Health Training

Hosting professional training allows you the flexibility of tailoring telemental health / telebehavioral health content to the exact specifications of your particular staff/employees/members/audiences. Identify which specific skills your group needs by discussing with our staff, then arrange a 1-hour webinar, 3-hour program, full-day workshop or 2-day Certification training at your convenience. Our mastery of this content and programming/scheduling flexibility allows you to tailor any Telebehavioral Health Institute (TBHI) training to your specific needs, on site or off site, either with an in-person speaker or via a live, interactive webinar.

Host Telebehavioral Health or Telemental Health Training: Benefits of Working with the Telebehavioral Health Institute

  • Competency & Evidence-Based Best Practices, Legal and Ethical Risk Management:  Your attendees will receive the most up-to-date, accurate, state-specific, and detailed training on telebehavioral health services by a seasoned speaker who can field just about any question, provide a range of successful examples, and provide references and other resources to support their positions
  • Demand: Bring your group a cutting-edge topic that is not only in high demand, but that will equip your audience with skills that will carry them into the next generation of behavioral health care.

Comment from the College of Alberta Psychologists’ Annual Professional Development Day, September 24, 2016, Calgary, Alberta, Canada:

We as a College were in search of a keynote speaker for our Annual Professional Development Day with expertise in telepsychology and social media for psychologists. Dr. Maheu’s name came with glowing recommendations for her depth of knowledge, proven experience, and dynamic presentation skills. She did not disappoint. The associated materials and references were based on considerable and current research. Not unexpectedly the response to Dr. Maheu’s presentations from our attendees was overwhelmingly positive.
