Engaging BIPOC Communities Effectively Using Telehealth

Join us for a Live Webinar on February 25, 2022 from 1-4 pm EST
2.5 CE Credits available for behavioral health clinicians

If you are unable to attend the live event, you can enroll in a condensed recorded version today.

The goal of this training is to deepen the participants’ understanding of the needs and challenges of clients who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) as they access and engage in behavioral health services provided through telehealth during this time of the COVID-19 and racism pandemics (Cheng & Conca-Cheng, 2020). The training will also integrate telehealth adaptations of trauma-focused and culturally-adapted interventions in working with BIPOC clients. Finally, participants will be provided with an opportunity to begin developing an implementation plan on how they will integrate trauma-informed and culturally-responsive approaches into their telehealth clinical work with BIPOC clients in their individual clinical practice and/or behavioral health programs.

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!
