Within the context of the growing prevalence of racial discrimination among BIPOC communities and its consistent relationship with Racial/Ethnic Stress and Trauma; this presentation will highlight existing trauma-focused, evidence-based, and community-centered practices that can be tele-adapted to help BIPOC clients heal in their racial/ethnic trauma. Finally, strategies for effective assessment and intervention of racial/ethnic trauma using video, audio/phone, app-based, and internet platforms will be discussed.

After attending this presentation, participants will be able to:

1. Define racial trauma within the context of behavioral health assessment and intervention of BIPOC clients.
2. Identify and describe at least two ways of addressing telehealth inequities and the digital divide when working with BIPOC clients.
3. Illustrate at least two methods of culturally-adapting trauma-focused interventions using telehealth platforms when working with BIPOC clients who present with racial/ethnic trauma.

Description: Telehealth has introduced a wide array of novel boundary and dual relationship issues in behavioral health. Traditional approaches to these issues must be expanded to address ethical challenges in the digital age. How should I manage clients who search online and find personal information about me on the internet? Is it ethical for me to search online for information about my clients without their knowledge or consent? Is it ever appropriate to be online social networking "friends" with a client or former client? Can I provide telehealth services to a former Facebook friend? What risks are associated with "after hours" online and digital communications with clients? Dr. Frederic Reamer will explore these and other boundary and dual relationship issues in telehealth. He will explore the implications of prevailing ethics standards and discuss ways to protect clients and help prevent ethics-related lawsuits and licensing board complaints.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify boundary and dual relationship issues associated with telehealth.
  • Apply relevant ethics, regulatory, and practice standards to manage boundary and dual relationship challenges
  • Design and implement protocols to protect clients
  • Design and implement protocols to help prevent ethics-related litigation and licensing board complaints

I took the Board Certified-TeleMental Health Provider Training Certification Course in 2018, I feel so lucky to have found the TeleHealth Certification Institute. It's a top notch training center which has continued to provide me with tools and the knowledge to grow my private teletherapy practice. I recently participated in the TeleMental Health Preparedness Summit 2020 and was definitely not disappointed. The excitement and enthusiasm from the participants and TeleHealth Certification Institute staff is contagious. I've been inspired, since, to look into taking more courses, and joined their FaceBook group. I will likely join their consultation group in the near future. I don't believe there is another training institute out there that is as good as this one for everything telebehavioral health. Thank you Ray! You are a visionary!
