Course Description

This very readable and thought-provoking course is the result of extensive research into expert opinion, government documentation, current studies, and current practices by practicing therapists on the cutting edge of telehealth. The rapid expansion and innovation of telehealth in the mental health field reflects the pervasiveness of computer and telecommunications technology in our lives. This is creating important opportunities for improved services and access. At the same time, telehealth practices and technologies pose substantial legal and ethical challenges.

This course provides a solid understanding of current telehealth media. It also familiarizes the participant with media their clients may be using. The course covers all ethical and legal areas being affected by telehealth, including safety, privacy, working across state lines, government access to records, encryption, contraindications, benefits and motives for telehealth practices, and much more. The participant will have practical, defensible guidelines for ethical and legal telehealth practice. The participant will be linked to an extensive, categorized, annotated list of resources that is maintained by the author.
