Expand Your Practice and Help Expand Access to Your Services

A thorough review of the clinical aspects of providing behavioral health services via video and phone sessions is critical before offering services remotely. Clinicians need a clear and documented plan for responding to emergencies both in the midst of and between sessions. You will address best practices for establishing tailored emergency management plans for each client, different locations, and modalities of communication. Learn to assess whether or not an individual is likely to be a fit for receiving behavioral health services from you or your organization depending on if they are going to receive services at your office, through video conferencing, a phone session, or via secure messaging. This program extensively covers the ethical and clinical skills of providing video sessions and phone sessions to your clients. You will cover the competencies of setting up the technology, the clinical setting, preparing the client, responding to technical issues, technology options, how to effectively use technology, communication skills specifically for video conferencing and phone sessions, and documentation.
