Best practice guidelines are reviewed from a number of different associations and perspectives to help you understand their practical implementation in working online with coaching and mental health clients. Settings, patient education, verbal agreements, dealing with family members, authentication, practice management, record keeping, HIPAA compliance, emergency backup and other fundamental issues will be covered, helping you to equip yourself to start practicing. This course then, involves a detailed review of various “Best Practices” documents (or similar papers) issued for telehealth, telemedicine, telemental health, telepsychology and online counseling. After a more extensive discussion of informed consent and its specific language, you will also receive an annotated “informed consent” document that you can bring to your own legal counsel for review. This invaluable tool is a unique feature of the TeleMental Health Institute and we are proud to help you get started quickly by making it available to you!
All readings are provided as part of your coursework at no added fee.
