As a response to the recent uprise in racial trauma and police brutality, Telehealth Certification Institute hosted a free, live webinar titled, “Racial Justice & Community Restoration: A Trauma-Informed Response to a Nation in Crisis.” This webinar included free CE hours for mental health professionals and covered pertinent information such as developing cultural competence and meeting the needs of racial minority clients; participants were also able to interact with the speakers and participate in this important dialogue during a live Q&A. Over 1,000 attendees had the opportunity to learn from leading experts in the field of trauma, racial reconciliation, and mental health.
In the midst of the global pandemic caused by Covid-19, there has not been a greater moment in time for telehealth services to be utilized with a variety of individuals who are experiencing feelings of isolation, stressors from social and economic impact of the virus, restrictions with their day to day movements, and also the potential added level of control associated with domestic abuse and violence that has been brought to the forefront as result of the virus.

In the era of Covid-19, a number of organizations, academic institutions, and businesses are transitioning into the use of virtual meeting platforms such as Zoom, Ring Central, or Skype to name a few. A number of video calls are being undertaken due to the adoption of social distancing guidelines but as a result, some individuals are finding themselves getting tired of being on video calls, particularly if this is an all-day occurrence. To discuss the benefits but also challenges that can be faced with the use of means of communication and also the growing use of virtual meeting platforms or video conferencing systems such as Zoom is Michael Sacasas.

What can you expect from a consultation session?
Private consultation with Ray Barrett is an opportunity for you -or your group- to seek specific guidance on the topics you want to discuss telehealth services. You may have just finished training and haven’t begun to provide distance services or perhaps you have the foundation for your telepractice but need help evaluating your current systems. Regardless of where you fit on the spectrum as a telemental health provider, consultation is a unique opportunity for you to set the agenda and clear goals for what you want to take away from your session with Ray.
March 27, 2020, is the date that the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) was passed. The CARES Act is a $2 trillion stimulus package and designates emergency funding for topics such as healthcare, state funding, and overall relief.

On March 20, 2020, Ray had an opportunity to catch up with Suzanne Gavin, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, a Nationally Certified Custody Evaluator, and a Nationally Certified Parenting Coordinator.
What caught Ray’s attention, and the attention of other clinicians is her honest breakdown of her transition (and the related anxieties) to what she referred to as a mandated telemental health practice.
