If you are challenged to work with children and youth to deliver pediatric telemedicine or telehealth, you are not alone. Many clinicians who are comfortable providing services in person are at a loss when a child plays off-screen, refuses to speak or participate, becomes emotional, or simply walks out of the room. Although much research has been published and guidelines for serving children and youth through telebehavioral health have been promulgated, much of that information has been difficult to most clinicians to find or implement day-to-day with manageable workflows.

This workshop aims to bring the pediatric telemedicine and telehealth evidence base to you in ways that are practical, predictable, and doable. You will walk away with a long list of new techniques, protocols, and resources to help you answer the majority of your clinical questions related to work with children, youth, and their families.  Whether you want to practice telehealth, teletherapy, telepsychology, telepsychiatry, telebehavioral health, teleoccupational health, telespeech therapy, or telemental health, this training will show you how.

This program is designed to answer your questions and give you the skinny on where to go to get the information you need, what to do, and how to document your activities. Led by a pioneering telehealth thought leader, this program invites you to get answers to these questions:

  • How can I deal with children who won’t sit in front of the camera where I can see them?
  • How can I engage youth who look away and don’t speak?
  • How can I effectively involve parents who are reluctant to assist before, during, or after a session?
  • What are the different types of telehealth, and which is best for my practice?
  • What are some effective strategies to engage children through videoconferencing?
  • Which type of type video technology is optimal for conducting family or group therapy?
  • Why can using emoticons, memes, and abbreviations can be counterproductive in telehealth?
  • How can you deal with children and youth who try to connect with you on social media?
  • What is the optimal camera setup to work with pediatric telemedicine and telehealth?
  • What are some of the connectivity issues that can interfere with your sessions, and how can they be remedied?
  • Where can I get up-to-date information about proven effective protocols for working with children, youth, and families?
  • How can published telebehavioral health competencies help me deliver my telehealth services more easily?

You will be given the rules of the road, how they can legally and ethically be modified, who needs to know what, how, and when they need to know it. You will be given instructions for where and how to get key pediatric telehealth and telemedicine documents you’ll want to have at your fingertips. This much-needed program involves case-based learning to help you quickly manage the transition from theory to evidence-based practice.
