Best Practices for Online Therapy, Telemental Health and Other Telepractice Arenas

OnDemand Webinar (61 minutes)

Gain a better understanding of the emerging field of telepsychology, including clinical and distance education applications.

Telehealth and telemental health are growing in popularity. Yet, providers and consumers continue to have questions about its appropriateness, efficacy, and how telehealth services work compared to traditional face-to-face encounters. You will benefit from this information by learning about the various formats and modalities of telehealth and how it can be applied to various populations. You will increase your competence to provide these types of services by exposure to best practice standards and guidelines and discussion of associated benefits and challenges. A thoughtful review of pragmatic, ethical, and legal considerations unique to telehealth and telemental health will also be provided along with a review of the research based efficacy of this approach.
