Social Workers

Source

“Standard 2.02: Services Requiring Licensure or Other Forms of Accreditation Social workers who provide electronic social work services shall comply with the laws and regulations that govern electronic social work services within both the jurisdiction in which the social worker is located and in which the client is located. Interpretation Social workers should be aware of all laws, regulations, and other rules that govern their work using technology, particularly license 13 laws. Most jurisdictions have adopted the position that electronic social work practice takes place in both the jurisdiction where the client is receiving such services (irrespective of the location of the practitioner) and in the jurisdiction where the social worker is licensed and located at the time of providing such electronic services (irrespective of the location of the client). If the client and social worker are in different jurisdictions, the social worker should be aware of and comply with the laws in both the jurisdiction where the social worker is located and where the client is located.”

THTC Program Button

Telemental health is not a separate service from mental health services. All state licensing boards require that licensed clinicians follow all the regulations for practicing under their license no matter what medium of communication is used. All licensing boards also require that clinicians only practice within the boundaries of their competence. This usually requires education, continuing education, and/or supervision in telemental health. Complete our telehealth training program to cover all the essential competencies of providing telemental health services and earn the THTC (Telemental Health Training Certificate).

    Hi Cassandra Mintzas
    When practicing out of state, there are two things to consider:
    1) what your license requires for providing telemental health and
    2) what the receiving state (where client is located) requires for those acting as "guests" delivering service in their state
    Since each state and licensing board is different, we have pulled together a resource that lists rules and regulations for all of them: https://www.telementalhealthtraining.com/states-rules-and-regulations
    Here is another resource that also has updated information (even temporary) with regard to the COVID-19 situation, The Center for Connected Health Policy: Home Page | CCHP Website

    Hello, I am a LMFT in the state of California. I am interested in becoming mulit-licensed. Is it possible to provide telehealth services to people living in the state of Oregon being a resident and licensed in California? If so, how to I obtain the proper credentials to do so in the state of Oregon, i.e., fees, application, testing? I appreciate your time in answering my questions.
    Warmly
