2020 WAMFT December Webinar

When:  Dec 14, 2020 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM (CT)

Utilizing Tele-mental Health to Conduct Effective Clinical Practice

Tele-mental health services can expand MFTs’ positive impact on clients by increasing access to quality mental health care. As more clinicians opt to utilize technological mediums to provide services, it is important to understand the effectiveness of tele-mental health for treating various mental illnesses. The purpose of this webinar is to: 1) Provide a brief introduction for conducting tele-mental services, 2) Discuss potential ethical concerns for conducting telemedicine services, and 3) Summarize the state of tele-mental health research for treating anxiety, depression, PTSD, and eating disorders. We will highlight which tele-mental health practices are considered effective for each disorder, including how each compares to in-person treatment. We will conclude the presentation with practical applications for MFTs who are currently using/considering using tele-mental health.
