Develop Your Core Competencies for Using Video-Based Teleconferencing for Clinical Services or Supervision
6 CE Hours Available
This focused, advanced training program is an intensive 100% online experience designed for professionals who want a clear, focused roadmap to setting up their telepractice office.
This course of study will help you choose the right technology (hardware and software) and anticipate problems that are likely to occur. Dr. Maheu will literally show you the differences between technologies; she will show you her desktop and office in this video-based course and will help you think about how to set up your own office. You then will learn how to educate your client/patient about the technology they choose to use, and help you understand how to address the myriad clinical problems that can arise.
Developing your core competencies with both the technical and clinical issues involved with video teleconferencing will also help you meet your legal and ethical requirements. Dr. Maheu will also give you a peek into the future of behavioral technology to help you make wise investments of time and energy to strategically plan for your upcoming technology needs.
