Still not sure if telemental health is right for you?

Get the facts. Dr. Maheu will give you a “big picture” perspective on what’s happening legally, ethically, politically, technologically — and why now is the right time for you to get started with:

  • reaching more clients/patients
  • lowering your overhead and
  • working from the convenience of any appropriate location via the Internet

At this end of this hour, Dr. Maheu will also spend an optional 30-minutes describing a clear roadmap for safe, legal and ethical telepractice.

Webinar attendees will receive clear and concise answers to these questions:

  • What’s happening that makes videoconferencing for behavioral care of particular relevance now?
  • What’s the difference between online therapy, telepsychiatry, distance counseling, telepsychology, etherapy, videotherapy, teletherapy, etc.?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of working through videoconferencing?
  • What are the risks and benefits of working online with videoconferencing?
  • What does the evidence base (research) have to say about videoconferencing with behavioral, substance use or mental health clients/patients?
  • What do the state licensing boards, malpractice carriers and graduate schools have to say about videoconferencing for behavioral care?
  • What do patients and other consumers have to say about videoconferencing for behavioral care?
