Best Practices for Telebehavioral Health Documentation
in Couple and Family Therapy

Join us for a Live Webinar on September 12, 2022 from 1-2:30 pm EST
1.5 Ethics CE hours available for behavioral health clinicians

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.

Learning Objectives:

  • 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.
