This Webinar Bundle consists of two courses:
Best Practices for Telebehavioral Health Documentation in Couple and Family Therapy, 9/12/22, 1-2:30 pm EST
Telebehavioral health (TBH) competencies were developed to improve the quality of practice for mental and behavioral health practitioners and to establish a standard of care in TBH. While several other disciplines had embraced TBH, the field of couple and family therapy was slower in its adoption. As the couple and family therapy field shifted quickly to adopting TBH at the onset of the pandemic, couple and family therapists had to quickly adapt their documentation in offline practices to online settings.
In many cases, both the process and content of clinical documentation (communication, business documents, consent, etc.) may have been developed quickly and without feedback from other peers of professionals knowledgeable about TBH practices. In this workshop, participants will learn about the common mistakes made in the development and maintenance of documentation in TBH practice in couple and family therapy. They will also learn strategies for documentation consistent with the TBH competencies, with specific attention to best practices for clinical care, competencies for evidenced based and ethical practice, and legal and regulatory issues
One Screen, Many Faces: Creating Space For Working with Couples and Families Via Telehealth, 9/13/22, 1-2:30pm EST
The effectiveness of telebehavioral health (TBH) has been documented for common presenting problems such as depression, anxiety, PTSD and trauma disorders, and substance use and abuse. In addition to the wide variety of presenting problems, TBh has been demonstrated to be effective for many different populations including those who are unable to access health care services due to their geography, those in rural areas, and military personnel. Conducting telebehavioral health (TBH) with more than one member of a relational system can be highly effective. On the other hand, working within TBH can also be fraught with limitations introduced by technology, varying locations of clients, and working with different developmental levels in one setting.
In this session, participants will be apprised of the benefits of multiple members in a session. This includes a focus on varied TBH strategies for working with members of a relationship system who are from different stages of development. Participants will also learn when it is appropriate to conduct TBH sessions with couples and families, and learn creative techniques for creating space for couples and families over TBH.
Join us immediately following the course for an optional "Connect and Refresh" 30-minute meeting to meet other course participants. Icebreakers and engaging discussion questions will be provided for breakout rooms.
After participating in Best Practices for Telebehavioral Health Documentation in Couple and Family Therapy participants will be able to:
- List three common mistakes made by couple and family therapists in TBH documentation.
- Describe the objectives within the TBH competencies dedicated clinical care and legal/regulatory issues as it pertains to documentation.
- Describe strategies for documentation consistent with the TBH competencies.
After participating in One Screen, Many Faces: Creating Space For Working with Couples and Families Via Telehealth participants will be able to:
- List the benefits of multiple members in family sessions.
- Explain when it is appropriate to conduct relational sessions via TBH.
- Use creative techniques for facilitating sessions with couples and families.
