Certificate Program in TeleMental Health & Digital Ethics

28 CE Credit Hours - $168.00

Telehealth is a growing field that is quickly affecting the practices of psychotherapists, counselors, medical professionals, and coaches - whether the professionals actively seek it out or not. With the complexity of digital record-keeping, remaining HIPAA-compliant in an era where many technology platforms do not specify whether they qualify, and being in a culture where clients and patients increasingly expect instant distance access to their therapists, it is easy to become confused or intimidated.

These courses are designed to bring the practitioner up to speed on current laws, regulations, resources, and best practices. Before embarking on a social media marketing campaign, texting with clients, using Skype to video-conference with clients, incorporating apps into the psychotherapy practice, or conducting online therapy, we highly recommend taking the courses in this certificate.

Communicating online has its own rules and protocols and requires a skill set that can be learned. Part of what we cover here is how to communicate effectively and ethically online, navigate the complex and ever-evolving issues of boundaries with technology, and maintain clients' confidentiality and safety while marketing via social media. Armed with the tools in these courses, psychotherapists can be ready to conduct telehealth services sustainably, within their comfort zone, and on the right side of ethics and the law.
