Telebehavioral Health – What Every Provider Needs to Know

We are happy to provide a free link for you to view the presentation here:

Are you a provider of behavioral health services, but are interested in expanding to telebehavioral health?  Do you already use telebehavioral health but are unsure of some of the legal, ethical or technical issues?

As telebehavioral health becomes more widespread, providers will need to become aware of several issues that govern the successful provision of online services. Webinar participants will learn about the important legal issues that relate to telehealth (e.g., licensure, informed consent, privacy/confidentiality); ethical issues (e.g., competencies, documentation, marketing); clinical issues (e.g., assessment/screening, boundaries/telepresence, handling emergencies); technical issues (e.g., technology/platform choices, cybersecurity, handling repairs); and other related information.
